Gold Digger: The Movie

Following rumors of an ancient time machine hidden somewhere in the forested hills of England, adventurer/archaeologist/super-scientist Gina Diggers and her kid sister Britanny, a seven-foot were-cheetah, find themselves pitted against fearsome rock monsters, spell-wielding elves, and a dragon bent on controlling all of time!

Gurren Lagann The Movie Childhoods End:

This is the story of a man who has yet to realize what destiny holds in store for him….

Far in the future, human live underground quietly and restlessly for hundreds of years, suffering from frequent earthquake and land subsidence. In Giha Village, one of such underground communities, there are two young men. One is called Simon who is shy and naïve, the other is called Kamina who believes in existence of a “surface” world above their heads. Destiny of the two starts moving drastically when the ceiling falls, and a gigantic “Gunmen” and a beautiful girl Yoko with a superconductive rifle come from the surface. Kamina, Simon and Yoko get on “Lagann” that Simon digs out from the ground, and jump out to the surface! However, the surface is not such a dreamland as Kamina imagined. The world is reined by the Spiral King and his army beastmen. Kamina and Simon, along with their comrades challenge the Spiral King to change the desperate world to the one with hope for the future by Gurren Lagann!

This event is free and open to the public for Ages 13 and up.
