Things just got real in Lego world. In this 3D computer-animated adventure, it’s up to Emmet (Chris Pratt), an ordinary man from Bricksburg, to save the day against the evil Lord Business (Will Ferrell) —a very presidential man who plans to take over the world by force.

With the use of a super weapon called the “Kragle” (aka an old tube of Krazy Glue), Lord Business attempts to freeze the world into his version of utopia. But when Emmet accidentally stumbles upon the Piece of Resistance, the one item needed to stop the villain, chaos and hilarity ensue on an epic journey that includes the Old West, aliens, and even Batman.

A star-studded cast voiced by Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Liam Neeson, Channing Tatum, and Jonah Hill, The Lego Movie was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film. It was also nominated for Best Original Song for “Everything Is Awesome,” the catchy jam sang in-part by Tegan and Sara, the Canadian gay wonder-twin pop duo and activist dreamboats.

Winning the BAFTA Award for Best Animated Film, among similar accolades, this 2014 gem has now expanded into a major franchise with spin-offs and sequels. Come join us for a free screening of the film that started it all. The Lego Movie builds a world that inspires – child and parent alike.
