“Zootopia” Is July’s Free Summer Movies Feature Film At Iroquois Amphitheater

Can a rabbit police officer and a fox con artist work together to figure out what’s going on in a city of animals where certain species are disappearing? That is the premise of “Zootopia” the next Free Summer Movie at Iroquois Amphitheater on Saturday, July 15th.

On the beat she comes in contact with Nick Wilde, a fox who is also a con artist. The two become unlikely partners as savage animal behavior starts breaking out though the city.

“Zootopia” features the voices Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Jenny Slate, Nate Torrence, Bonnie Hunt, Don Lake, Tommy Chong, J. K. Simmons, Octavia Spencer, Alan Tudyk, and Shakira.
