This week the movie is another one of those that is based on a true story. They seem to be very popular here in Corydon. It is an R rated drama called 'Patriots Day' and is based on the story of the Boston Massacre. There is no 3D. The movie is two hours and 13 minutes long.

On April 15, 2013, Boston Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders is pulling security duty on the annual marathon when the Tsarnaev brothers strike with their homemade bombs in an act of terrorism.

In the resulting chaos, as the wounded are cared for, Saunders and his buddies join forces with the FBI to get to the bottom of the attack. As the investigation continues, the brothers realize that the authorities are close to identifying them and they attempt to flee the city to continue their terror attack.

To stop them a police manhunt is set up that would have bloody confrontations. It is a massive dragnet that shuts down the city to make sure there is no escape from the law.

The cast includes Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman and J.K. Simmons. The film is rated R for the violence, realistic graphic injury and language throughout.

Don't forget there is no Sunday evening show, but there is a Sunday afternoon matinee at 2 p.m.

See you at the movies!
