‘Sully’ is this week's movie (and next week's too) at the Wayne Theatre. It is a 2016 American biographical drama based on the Chesley Sullenberger autobiography and is held over the second week because of the popularity of the movie and Wayne’s homecoming is Sept. 30.

Shown in 2-D only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7:30 p.m. The new admission price is in effect, $4 for adults and children alike.

On Jan. 15 2009, the world witnessed the ‘Miracle on the Hudson’ when Captain ‘Sully’ Sullenberger glided his disabled plane onto the frigid water of the Hudson River. All 155 lives onboard the plane were saved.

"Suicide Squad"
We hope everyone had a great Old Settlers. Saturday was a beautiful day and the crowds reflected that. The theatre was happy to be used as a possible alternative for the bandstand entertainment in case of rain.

The Cambria-Corydon class of 1962 held a fundraiser on the square on Saturday and collected donations for the theatre from many residents and visitors. The theatre committee certainly appreciates their successful efforts.

The movie this week is a take-off of the recent superhero movies, and it became a highly popular film. It is PG-13 “Suicide Squad.”
