'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'
It has been a lot of years since the first ‘Planet of the Apes’ film was released, and there has been a huge improvement in special effects and production. This latest film has received good reviews—even from John Pascuzzi on KCCI, who usually doesn’t like anything.

This week we will be playing what is, probably, the sixth edition of a Planet of the Apes stories. ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ is rated PG-13 and will be shown in 3D of Friday and Sunday and in 2D on Saturday evening.

It seems every time a new apes story comes out, there is a new set of cast members. This time it is Gary Oldman and Keri Russell.

An 'R' rated film is being shown at the Wayne Theatre this weekend, and it is a definite ‘R’ film and not for the young or under 17. It is the comedy ‘Tammy’ starring Melissa McCarthy.

Several people have asked for the movie and wondered if we are going to play it. Our movie booker in Kansas City suggested we show the movie. The cast has Academy Award winners Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates. Other members of the cast include Dan Aykroyd and Allison Janney.

The 'R' rating is for language and sexual content. We have played other McCarthy films such as with Sandra Bullock successfully.
