What's on at Crouch End Picturehouse - Autism-Friendly
Packed with irreverence and subversive humour, the animated story of the secret lives of pets continues with new challenges for Max, Gidget, Snowball and the gang to contend with. For terrier Max, it’s ditching his anxiety about protecting his owner’s toddler; for Pomeranian Gidget, it’s rescuing Max’s favourite toy from a flat full of felines; and for crazy-but-cute bunny Snowball, it’s being a hero after only pretending to be one. Can our furry friends summon the courage to face their biggest fears?

At the end of Despicable Me 2, one-time dastardly supervillain Felonious Gru (Carell) seemed to have hung up his ‘evil’ cape for good. Having settled in the ‘burbs with his feisty super agent wife (Wiig) and three adorable, unicorn-loving, adopted daughters, he’s now out to actively fight crime, not cause it. Until, that is, a long lost, enviably hirsute twin brother (also Carell) pops out of the woodwork to tempt Gru back to the dark side… Eagerly anticipated by everyone from toddlers to adults, this animated threequel also voice casts Trey Parker (co-creator of South Park and The Book Of Mormon) as an ’80s-obsessed baddie with truly villainous shoulder pads. As if that wasn’t enough, one final word will sell it to you: Minions!
