Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original release of The Lego Movie by attending a free, family night out at Harper College.

He finds himself drafted into a fellowship of strangers who are on a mission to stop an evil tyrant's (Will Ferrell) plans to conquer the world. Unfortunately for Emmet, he is hopelessly -- and hilariously -- unprepared for such a task, but he'll give it his all nonetheless” (Google). Warner Bros. Pictures, 2014. Runtime 1 hour 40 minutes, rated PG.
