June 6 | A Dog’s Purpose (PG)
Starring: Britt Robertson, John Ortiz & Dennis Quaid
In 1962, eight-year-old Ethan and his mother rescue a Golden Retriever puppy from a hot car. Despite the reservations of Ethan’s father, the family adopts the pup they name Bailey. The two are inseparable during Ethan’s childhood and teen years, but when he goes to college he has to leave Bailey at home. While Ethan is away at school, the aging dog becomes sick, and Ethan makes it to the veterinarian just in time for their final goodbye. Ethan is inconsolable, but this is not the end of their bond. Bailey is reborn in the body of Ellie, a German Shepherd K-9 first responder with the Chicago Police Department, and no one is more surprised than the wiggly puppy who is still Ethan’s best friend. Bailey continues to return in other reincarnations, and though he is unsure why his soul keeps returning for new adventures, he will discover that the purpose of his many lifetimes is more crucial to his boy than he could have ever imagined. Based on the novel by W. Bruce Cameron.
June 13 | Sing! (PG)
Starring: Matthew McConaughey & Reese Witherspoon
Buster Moon is a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times.

Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition. Five lead contestants emerge: a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons, a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo. Each animal arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.
