The movie at the Wayne Theatre this week is one the whole family has been waiting for and is considered the best live action film ever made by the Disney Company. ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is rated PG and is two hours and nine minutes long.

It will be shown in 3D on Friday night and 2D on Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. Admission prices for 3D are $6 and 2D are $4 for adults and children. There will be no Sunday evening performances.

It is being held for two weeks as required by the Disney Company but it is a great movie for the Easter season. To get it for just one week we would probably wait at least another month.

This is a retelling in live action of Disney's animated classic. It re-fashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a more contemporary audience. It stays true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs.

‘Beauty and the Beast’ is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true prince within.

There will be a special free Saturday afternoon matinee at 2 p.m. right after the Easter Egg hunt in the courthouse square, on Sat., April 15. The animated film will be one that has never been shown at the Wayne Theatre, ‘The Dog that Saved Easter’ and it is also a PG movie sponsored by the Allerton-Corydon Chamber of Commerce and the Wayne Optimist Club.

See you at the movies!
