The trio embark on a thrilling journey that leads them to the Minions world’s first-ever female super-villain and their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind from annihilation.

Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder [PG] 83 mins   How far can a successful fart get you? Will it only lead to a good laugh, or could you possibly gain international recognition?

When two kids from his neighbourhood drop by for an unexpected visit, it becomes the beginning of an unusual friendship and a riotous business project. Based on the books by successful Norwegian crime-noir and children’s writer Jo Nesbo, this is a modern-day fairy tale set in a world where the most normal adult is a mad professor, and where the farts are powerful enough to launch you into outer space.
