Friday, January 29th – Q300 PTA Meeting and Pajama Movie Night

Posted on Updated on

The Movie:

Q300 Movie Night - MInions
Minions: The Minions, breakout stars from “Despicable Me” and “Despicable Me 2” are presented in an origin story that showcases their unpredictable personality and physicality, and pairs them with equally memorable human characters. As it turns out, Minions have existed since the beginning of time. They have evolved from single (yellow) cell organisms into the familiar beings we know, and they live for a collective purpose: to seek out and serve the most despicable master they can find. Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock leads the voice cast of the human characters as Scarlett Overkill, the world’s reigning super-villain of the 1960s.

The Date / Time:
