First Colony Branch Library to offer free family movie matinees

Fort Bend County Libraries will feature free Family Movie Matinees in January at the First Colony Branch Library, 2121 Austin Parkway in Sugar Land.

The movie matinee on Saturday, January 11, is an animated family comedy in which the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called “the Naughties” that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. When he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants, and that Smurfette is the only one with a secret spell that can turn Naughties into real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette. Papa Smurf, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity set out to rescue Smurfette, and Gargamel soon realizes that executing his diabolical plan may be easier said than done.

This movie is rated PG. Showtime is 1:30 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library.

On Saturday, January 18, families will be treated to an animated comedy feature starring Steve Carell as Gru, an ex-supervillain who is trying to adjust to family life and an honest living in the jam business. In this sequel to a popular 2010 animated feature, a secret Arctic laboratory is stolen, and Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to investigate the crime. Gru’s prime suspect is the presumed-dead supervillain, El Macho, but is his judgment being clouded by his overprotectiveness of his children and his growing attraction to his crime-fighting partner?

This movie is rated PG. Showtime is 1:30 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library.

The movies are free and open to the public. Movie-goers are invited to bring a blanket and pillow. Refreshments will be available. For more information about the featured movies, call the branch library at 281-238-2800 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
