If you have some time, make sure you go to their next movie night February 19, to see their showing of Marvel’s Black Panther.

“102 Dalmatians: Puppies to the Rescue” is a wonderful platformer released for PC and PlayStation in 2000. It’s loosely based on the “102 Dalmatians” live-action movie, but not really since the plot is completely different. You play as the puppies Oddball and Domino as you race to save your siblings from Cruella de Vil, who kidnapped them to use as toys. Despite the title, there are actually only 100 dalmatians in the game.
