Friday July 11, 2014 - Frozen (PG). After the kingdom of Arendelle is cast into eternal winter by the powerful Snow Queen Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), her sprightly sister Anna (Kristen Bell) teams up with a rough-hewn mountaineer named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his trusty reindeer Sven to break the icy spell.
Friday, July 18, 2014 - The Nut Job (PG). Surly, a curmudgeon, independent squirrel is banished from his park and forced to survive in the city.

Friday, July 25, 2014 - Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (PG). Picking up precisely where its hit predecessor left off, Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) has been invited to join the Live Corp Company and use his gift for invention for the good of mankind. Just as young Flint prepares to go to work for his hero Chester V (voice of Will Forte), the young genius learns that his water-to-food machine is not only still functional, but it's also started cross-breeding animals with food. Saving the world from these rampaging monstrosities won't be easy, but if anyone is up to the task, it's Flint and company.
Friday, August 1, 2014 - Smurfs 2 (PG). Gargamel is back! Determined to harness the magical essence of the Smurfs, wicked wizard Gargamel creates a diminutive race of mischief makers known as the Naughties. Having recently shot to fame in Paris due to his impressive magical powers, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette, and sweeps her away to the City of Light. With Papa Smurf and company hot on his trail, however, the scheming wizard quickly realizes that executing his diabolical plan will be easier said than done.
