'The Magnificent Seven'
With the holidays coming up and all the fall and winter birthdays, I just want to remind you that movie tickets can be purchased at the both banks and the Wellness Center. They make great gifts for any occasion.

Seven years ago fans of western movies were upset when a famous western movie, 'True Grit' was remade. There has been less brew-ha with this week’s western at the Wayne Theatre.

'The Magnificent Seven' was an even more popular movie because the original dates back to 1960. This film is the third time the directors, Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington have worked together on a movie.

The film is rated PG-13 and follows a tried and true formula, when a land baron intends to take over a small town surrounded by gold veins. He offers all the landowners $20 for their property. If they didn't take the deal they better get out of town.

After two weeks of a disturbing plane crash in the Hudson River, it is time for an animated comedy. ‘Storks’ is the next PG-rated movie at the Wayne Theatre.

It will be shown in 2D only all three nights at the new admission charge of $4 for adults as well as children. If you have been watching TV at all recently, you have seen trailers of this film.

Storks deliver babies, or at least they used to. Now, according to this movie, they deliver packages too for a global Internet retail giant. Junior (Andy Samberg), the company's top delivery stork, is about to be promoted. He accidentally activates the baby-making machine and an adorable wholly unauthorized baby girl is produced.

He is desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise. Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop.

This weekend is Homecoming at Wayne Community School and we hope everyone supports the Falcons and the school and attends the game at the magnificent sports complex. We also hope you come to the theatre to see Tom Hanks in the true story of "Sully" if you did not see it last week.

Even if you did see it you may wan to see this movie about the landing of a plane in the Hudson River again. Sully is considered a hero for saving all the lives on the plane.

I recently received some information about the rise and fall of the movie business in the U. S. and would like to share it with you. We sometimes get an issue of Showtime, the theatre industry's official marketing and preview guide. It features the films we will be playing from September through the middle of December.

Their selection of what of what may be the biggest films is based on the talent involved, plus the appeal of early previews. The good news is that the next three months feature a very diverse group with multiple films that could hit it big. That doesn't always mean they will gross well here, but we hope so.

"Sully" stood tall in its second week. Mid-week grosses were strong as older patrons found time to go to the movies.
