Sounds too good, probably is - but not necessarily
In case you missed this fee-free freebie, no problemo. For I, Chris Carvill, boldly going where no man's gone before, have unearthed another top opp'. This time, from those cunning cads at Maroondah Council. During February, treating you to screenings of Minions / Inside Out - for FREE. Why they're being so generous, obviously sus'. Nevertheless, take it and run - know what I mean? Before they implant their super-duper cranial microchips.

If you didn't click that link above, allow me to acquaint you with these epic pics.

MINIONS
(sidesplitting mayhem):



These lovable lemon-colored lilliputians have endured for eons. Sole purpose: serve the most vile of villains - T Rex, Napoleon, vampires. However, after years of solitude, they grow antsy. Longing for a leader, Kevin decides it's time. Faithfuls Stuart and Bob by his side, he sets sail for New York. Upon attending 'Villain-Con', successfully impressing Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock). Their first evil assignment: steal the royal crown. However, after being caught in the act, then escaping, Bob accidentally winds up loosening Excalibur. Upon being crowned, enraging their pre-Gru master.

INSIDE OUT (madcap high jinks):



11 year old Riley enjoys a comfortable life. When, upon moving to San Francisco, her world's flipped upside-down. Coziness to bleakness as her 'emotional headquarters' are thrown off-balance. Disoriented, overwhelmed, her five key emotions ("Joy", voiced by Amy Poehler, "Sadness", voiced by Phyllis Smith, "Disgust", voiced by Mindy Kaling, "Fear", voiced by Bill Hader, and "Anger", voiced by Lewis Black) become unsettled. Her 'memory islands', increasingly destabilized. Joy under attack, Riley must navigate her competing emotions.
