"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.” Aug 22, 2016, 14:41
'Ice Age: Collision Course' Old Settlers is over for another year. This is being written before it started, but all indications indicate it should have been a good one. The theatre was closed and used for all kinds of things for the celebration. I don't know how Old Settlers got along without it as a storeroom all those years.
This week the movie is “Ice Age: Collision Course.” It is a PG animated good time with a message about the global warming told in an entertaining way.

It will be shown in 2D for adults and children on Saturday and Sunday for the new price of $5 for both children and adults.

'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.’ Jul 25, 2016, 09:28
'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. Jul 18, 2016, 09:15
