Pixar showed their first public screening of Up on Thursday, right here in the Twin Cities. The Southdale theater, in fact. According to the MPR post, the movie was ushered in under heavy security, and was so new it still lacked the credits.

MPR's Euan Kerr was impressed with Up:
It has to be said, the wait was worthwhile. "Up" is at times quite breathtaking.
