DC Readers: Attend A Free Early Screening Of ‘Minions: The Rise Of Gru’

We’re happy to offer or DC readers the chance to attend a free early screening of Minions: The Rise of Gru! The sequel to 2015’s Minions and the latest in the Despicable Me franchise features the voices of Steve Carell, Taraji P. Henson, Michelle Yeoh, and more.

SYNOPSIS: In the 1970s, young Gru tries to join a group of supervillains called the Vicious 6 after they oust their leader — the legendary fighter Wild Knuckles. When the interview turns disastrous, Gru and his Minions go on the run with the Vicious 6 hot on their tails. Luckily, he finds an unlikely source for guidance — Wild Knuckles himself — and soon discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.

The screening takes place tomorrow, June 27th at 7:00pm at Regal Majestic in Silver Spring. If you’d like to attend, RSVP at the Gofobo ticketing site here. Please remember all screenings are first come first served and you’ll need to arrive early to ensure seating. Enjoy the show!

Minions: The Rise of Gru opens July 1st.
