'The Secret Life of Pets'
The changes at the Wayne Theatre have begun to take place. Our first canned soft drinks have been sold at the $1 price. The new admission prices have been collected last weekend and I am sure that went well.

The new admission prices are $4 for adults and children alike for 2D movies and $6 for adults and children alike for 3D movies. ‘The Legend of Tarzan’ was the first movie to have the new admission prices.

All these new price changes have been put in place to make more money for the theatre so the expenses can be paid for increased movie costs, and a downturn in movie attendance and to keep the theatre open.

Now let’s talk about this week's movie, ‘The Secret Life of Pets.’

'The Legend of Tarzan'
Prices have changed at the Wayne Theatre! 2D movies are $4 for everyone—that includes children, and 3D movies are $6 for everyone—that includes children. It is a price increase for admissions. Candy is $2 for the larger ‘sharing’ size portion. Soft drinks will be served in 12-ounce cans, still only $1 and the best popcorn in southern Iowa is also only $1. These changes are necessary if the theatre is going to stay open.

Some Tarzan fans remember the original movies in the 1930s and 40s and played TV reruns for years. ‘The Legend of Tarzan’ is a high stakes movie and our next film at the Wayne Theatre.

'Finding Dory'
It is time! Time to increase prices at the Wayne Theatre if the business is going to stay open. Just like all businesses, when the expenses go up the price to the consumer must increase too.

Admission prices to the theatre will increase to $4 for adults and children alike for 2D movies, and admission for 3D movies will be $6, also for adults and children alike. This will not happen until after ‘Finding Dory’ visits Corydon later in July.

We will be going to larger size candy portions, like most theaters sell, and they will be $2.00. Popcorn and soft drinks will not change in price at this time. The concession stand will change in appearance with the addition of a new pop cooler.

The reason for these changes is not only because of the increase cost of films, but also because attendance at the theatre continues to decline. Several ideas for fundraisers have been suggested to the committee and are being reviewed at the present time.

'Central Intelligence'
The movie this week at the Wayne Theatre is considered an action/crime film with comedy overtones. ‘Central Intelligence’ is a one hour and 54 minute movie that is rated PG-13.

Bullied as a teenager for being overweight, Bob Stone (Dwayne Johnson) shows up at his high school class reunion looking fit and muscular. While there, he finds Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart), a fast talking accountant who misses his glory days as a popular athlete.

Stone is now a lethal CIA agent who needs Calvin's number skills to help him save the compromised U.S. spy satellite system. Together the former classmates encounter shoot outs, espionage and double-crosses while trying to prevent worldwide chaos.
