'Rogue One—A Star Wars Story'
This will be the second week for 'Rogue One—A Star Wars Story.' I have had lots of question about our scheduling that movie for two weeks. The major reason is because the distribution companies will not let us have it any other way.

The Disney Company requires any theater that is not a seven-day theater must hold the movie for two weekends. It will probably available later for just a one weekend run, but there is no indication it will be anytime soon.

We hope there are still some people that have not seen the film that grossed almost $500 million dollars since Christmas.

Big news at the Wayne Theatre! Beginning Feb. 6, there will be a matinee on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. It is a trial plan for three months and there will not be a Sunday evening movie.

We hope this will increase our Sunday attendance and let those people get to the theatre that do not like to get out after dark. Remember—Feb. 6 for three months will be Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. and no Sunday evening movie. If it brings more people to the theatre that program may continue for longer that three months. If you do not like it we will discontinue the matinees and return to the evening movie.

This week the movie is PG rated ‘Sing,’ a very popular animated movie musical. It will be show only in 2D on all three evening and admission price is $4 for adults and children.

Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Buster Moon, a dapper Koala, presides over a once great theater that has fallen on hard times.

It’s Coming! Matinees to the Wayne Theatre will be starting the first Sunday in February. For three months as a trial run Sunday afternoon matinees will be on the Wayne silver screen. Each Sunday there will be only a matinee and the same movie that is shown Friday and Saturday will be the Sunday show and there will be NO evening movie on Sunday.

Then the moviegoers for the weekend can vote yea or nay and deposit their vote anonymously in the ballot box situated in the lobby. A movie patron can vote every time they go to the movies.

We just get one big election over and it’s time for another. The first matinee will be Sun., Feb. 5 at 2 p.m. and there will be no evening movie that evening.

Now to the current news at hand: this week the movie is ‘Passengers.’ It is rated PG-13 for language and will be shown in 3D on Friday with admission of $6 for adults and children and 2D on Friday and Sunday with a $4 admission.

Two passengers (Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence) are aboard a spacecraft traveling to a distant planet. They are brought out of suspended animation by a technical glitch, 90 years before they are to reach their destination.
