Animation, Comedy, Musical Rated: PG 108 min

In a city of humanoid animals, a hustling theater impresario’s attempt to save his theater with a competition like American Idol brings all kinds of would-be singers, talents and styles to the stage. This toe-tapping, computer-animated comedy starring Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon and Seth MacFarlane features a massive, comedic and gifted voice cast that also includes bonafide belters like Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls) and Taron Egerton (Rocketman).

All tickets $5
