LEGO BATMAN
PG Fantasy/Action 2 hours and 9 minutes

Admission is FREE due to the generous sponsorship from Duke Energy.

There are big changes brewing in Gotham, but if Batman (Will Arnett) wants to save the city from the Joker’s (Zach Galifianakis) hostile takeover, he may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Perhaps his superhero sidekick Robin (Michael Cera) and loyal butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) can show him a thing or two.

All movies are subject to change as a result of weather-related activities.

Jun 4 @ 6:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Concert on the Green
Too Much Fun
www.tmfband.com
No cover charge

Studio recordings are all well and good, but the spirit, the energy, the humor and the interaction of the band in the live setting is the best way to enjoy Too Much Fun. Not only can you count on ‘genuine dance-ability’ from the tunes, there are also the jokes, the quizzes, the tributes and general good-natured goofiness that sometimes emanates from the stage. Come out and see for yourself!

All Sunday Music Concerts are sponsored by Hyatt Place – Chapel Hill in Southern Village!
