Corydon Times

Old Settlers weekend
This weekend is the only weekend the Wayne Theatre is closed all year. We are also closed on Christmas Eve, but just for the one day. The Old Settlers Committee requests that they have access to the theatre in case the music and entertainment cannot be on the bandstand because of inclement weather. Besides that, everyone should be taking advantage of all there is to do at Old Settlers.

It takes a lot of time and effort to produce one of the finest celebrations in southern Iowa. It is only hoped the residents and all the visitors that come back to Corydon take part in the activities. This year the carnival will be back on the square and everyone should make an effort to enjoy it and all the other activities.

Last week at the Wayne Theatre was a big week. A lot of people enjoyed the ‘Minions’ so they will be back again this weekend. This is also the beginning of fair week and hopefully a lot of you will be going to the county fair or showing livestock or entering 4-H projects.

The Minions is a PG film and July has had two of the highest grossing animated movies ever. The other one we had a couple of weeks ago was ‘Inside Out.’

A dog superhero is the subject of this week's PG-rated movie, ‘Max’ after a weekend of Disney animated characters. It means two PG-rated movies in a row. A trained military dog, Max, served on the front line in Afghanistan along side his handler, U. S Marine Kyle Winscott. When things go wrong on maneuvers, Kyle is mortally wounded.

Max is traumatized by the loss of his best friend, is unable to remain in service. He is shipped stateside and only wants to connect with Kyle’s brother, Justin, who has issues of his own, such as living up to his father's expectations.

'Inside Out'
We have gone from the scariest dinosaurs to one of the best movies to come from the Disney Studio in recent years—as reported by several critics. ‘Inside Out’ is rated PG and has a storyline that should appeal to both parents and children. Great animated characters and a lesson for the older generation. It will be shown only in 2D on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and it is 94 minutes long.

The busy 4th of July is over and it is time to relax and enjoy a good movie. Riley and her family are being uprooted from their Midwest roots, and we all know what that would be like.

'Jurassic World'
'Jurassic World' was the top grossing movie this year and may be forever when all the figures are in. It is unusual because the producers waited so long to do a sequel. For this reason we are running it for a second week.

It is also Independence Day weekend and a lot of Corydonites are out of town either one of the weekends it is playing. With all the festivities in the area it may have been difficult to find a time to see the movie, if it had only been shown one weekend. Local activities include Freedom Ring at the museum, pie contest, The Horton’s, Lion’s Club ham barbecue, WAYCO Arts Council ice cream social on the square and fireworks at the lake.
