'Black and White' Hopefully this weekend the weather will be warmer so the people will get out and about and come to the movies. Mike Binder’s family drama ‘Black and White’ stars Kevin Costner as Elliot, a wealthy citizen of Los Angeles whose wife dies in a car accident in the opening scenes of the movie.
This leaves him alone to care for his young bi-racial granddaughter, Eloise (Jillian Estell). Eloise mother died in childbirth and the girl’s African American father has been out of the picture because of a severe drug problem. Eloise’s paternal grandmother, Rowena (Octavia Spencer) is a straight talking woman who lives with her large family in East L.A., and she decides that Eloise needs to be around all her family now more than ever, and sues for custody.

'Taken 3' We are back on our normal schedule at the Wayne Theatre with movies at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Did any of you go to one of the matinees last week? We showed the ‘Hobbit’ on Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. because our projector was disabled for the normal run of the movie. We also wonder if we should be showing a matinee on Saturday or Sunday during our normal movie schedules.
This weeks film is ‘Taken 3’ rated PG-13. It is a no-brainer that Liam Nesson should continue as the star of this third edition of ‘Taken.’ He has been very successful as the former CIA agent. The previous two films in the series have grossed over 285 million dollars in the U.S. and millions more overseas. Jan 26, 2015, 09:02
'Unbroken' On the Wayne silver screen this week is a movie that has been directed by someone that would usually act in the film. It is a PG-13 movie called ‘Unbroken’ and you are right, it was directed by Brad Pitt’s wife, Angelina Jolie.
The movie has been mentioned for awards this winter, like the Oscars or Golden Globes. The Globes will be on Sunday, but this is being written on Friday before the awards are presented.
The film is a triumph of the human spirit story about Louis Zamperini, a U.S. Olympic medalist who is drafted to serve in World War II. He is a U.S. national or international track star. He is in the Air Force and his bomber is shot down during a mission, causing him and two other survivors to spend 40 plus days in the middle of the ocean. Jan 12, 2015, 12:42
