Headed to the movies? The holiday weekend brings you on a trip across the African plains, another Tyler Perry comedy, and a sad story about a man who joins a traveling circus after he loses his parents. Read more for a quick synopsis of the movies, trailers, and showtime info.


African Cats” (G)

Documentary starring Samuel L. Jackson.

A nature documentary that follows two cat families across the wilds of Africa. I have a feeling there will be a lot of "awwwww's" during this one. Who doesn't like wild animal babies? If you want to see it in IMAX you'll need to go to Lakewood, Louisville, Westminster, or Denver.

Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family” (PG-13)
Stars Tyler Perry, Loretta Devine, Shad “Bow Wow”, Gregory Moss, Cassi Davis and Isaiah Mustafa.

Another comedy/drama from Tyler Perry. Madea jumps into action when her niece, Shirley, receives some bad news regarding her health.

Water For Elephants”(PG-13)
