'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'
Wow! Wait until you see the new carpet and freshly painted floors at the theatre. They were brought to you through a grant provided from the Sam Langtry Foundation. Mr. Langtry and his wife moved to Humeston to retire and were residents there for a number of years. They were active in the Humeston community and the foundation has been instrumental in providing funds for many County projects.

The Wayne Theatre Committee is most appreciative. It will not be necessary to remove your shoes when you enter the theatre building.

This week the movie is a major release for the spring season. "Guardian of the Galaxy Part II" will be shown in 3D on Friday at 7:30 p.m., admission cost $6 for adults and children and in 2D on Saturday at 7:30p.m. and Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. admission cost $4 for adults and children.

The entire gang is back with Quill leading his rag-tag band of alien misfits on reward seeking missions and intergalactic battles. And he gets another step closer to learning who his father was.

Enter Kurt Russell as Ego, an eccentric traveler who's created a planet derived from DNA—and now with his son has much bigger plans.

'The Fate of the Furious'
It has been a busy week for the theatre committee. We started with our quarterly meeting on Wednesday and made some decisions for improvements in the building. It was decided that we would continue with Sunday matinees for another month or so and see how attendance improves in the summertime.

Physically at the building, our projectionist wore his Clayton Plumbing hat along with another Clayton employee, and removed the sewer pipe from the basement and replaced it with new equipment. That was a big job that took most of a day.

You won't see that new sewer pipe unless you go to the basement—and we don't recommend that, because the steps are treacherous.

We also discussed some other physical changes that you will see when they are completed. The north display window has been repaired after it was broken.

This week’s movie is one that has been popular around the nation, and if you have seen it maybe you would like to see it again even though it is also graduation weekend

‘The Fate of the Furious’ is rated PG-13 and will be shown in 2D only with a $4 admission charge. Now Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from their game. The rest of the crew were found innocent and has found a semblance of a normal life.

'Smurfs: The Lost Village'
This week the Wayne Theatre is back to a fully animated movie. It is the popular ‘Smurfs: The Lost Village.’ It will not be shown in 3D so admission price is only $4 for adults and children.

The movie is rated PG for some very minor action and rude humor. It is one hour and 30 minutes long.

'Power Rangers'
The Beauty and the Beast have left Corydon after as successful two weekends. Now it is time for some action in the super hero vein.

The “Power Rangers” movie is PG-13 because of some violence and stars Bryan Cranston, Bill Hader and Elizabeth Banks. It runs two hours and four minutes.

Five ordinary teens must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angle Grove and the world is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat.

Chosen by destiny, the students infused with extraterrestrial powers find they must harness this power since they are the only ones who can save the planet.

But to do so they will have to over come their real life issues. They must come together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

This week's movie, ‘Lion,’ is another one nominated for six academy awards and is considered a biographical drama. It is one hour and 58 minutes long and rated PG-13 for thematic material.

In 1986, Saroo was a five-year-old child livening in India, part of a poor but happy family. On a trip with his brother, Saroo soon finds himself alone and trapped in a moving decommissioned passenger train that takes him to Calcutta, 1,500 miles from home.

Totally lost in an urban environment and too young either to identify himself or his home to the authorities, Saroo struggles to survive as a street child until he is sent to an orphanage. He is adopted, where he grows up in a prosperous home.

He is reminded of his lost family and in his adulthood searches for them without his adoptive family or girlfriend’s knowledge.
