Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked

(G) ★★☆☆☆

The chipmunks’ third digitally animated turn on the big screen parks the guys, their three Chipette counterparts and their human family on a deserted island. The return of Jason Lee as Dave, the rodent wrangler who keeps our pop-singing ground squirrels in line, gives the picture a hint of the heart that made the original work. The gags and jokes are tame. Parents shouldn’t expect much, but most kids will enjoy the show.

In the sleek black-and-white lobby of Suite 15 in the strip mall that was once home to the Liberace Museum, B-boys and girls of all ages will discuss music, show off their gear and try out new moves. 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.
