Thursday 20 October | Monsters University

We all remember Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) and James P. Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman) as an inseparable pair, but that wasn't always the case. This is the story of how wise-cracking Mike and lovable Sulley first met. From the moment these two mismatched monsters encountered each other in college they couldn't stand each other. Bursting with fun and plenty of laughs, "Monsters University" unlocks the door to reveal how Mike and Sulley overcame their original differences and became the best of friends.

Running time: 103 mins
