Cinema by the Canal: Despicable Me

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences sits a black house with a dead lawn. Hidden beneath this home is the vast secret hideout of the evil mastermind, Gru. Surrounded by a small army of minions, Gru is planning the biggest heist in the history of the world; he is going to steal the moon. However, he needs a little human help to assist him in his nefarious plan, so Gru adopts three little girls from the orphanage. They see in Gru what no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad.  Lewes Canalfront Park, June 16th, 8:15 p.m.
