The Adventures of Tintin

(PG) ★★☆☆☆

Based on the popular comic books, this motion-capture animation feature by Steven Spielberg can’t seem to shake the limits of its technology. Tintin (Jamie Bell), and his dog Snowy, come into possession of a model ship, which contains a clue to a vast treasure. Our boy-man hero then becomes the pawn in a duel between Capt. Haddock (Andy Serkis) and the sinister Sakharine (Daniel Craig). It’s all a dramatic, drawn out chase scene, and the mo-cap just feels fake.

To the right in an 800-square-foot studio, dancers will learn krumping, popping, hip-hop, breaking and DJing from world-renowned choreographers. During open session, dancers will practice at their leisure in a second studio.
