Skating Rinks, bowling alleys, and laser tag arenas are all closed, but movie theaters are still open. Waynesville's movie theater, Smoky Mountain Cinema, is open and showing movies for families to enjoy.
The theater, located at 235 Waynesville Plaza, is currently showing Wonder Woman 1984 and News of the World, starring Tom Hanks.
Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman's next big screen adventure finds her facing two all-new foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah.
Diana Prince lives quietly among mortals in the vibrant, sleek 1980s — an era of excess driven by the pursuit of having it all. Though she's come into her full powers, she maintains a low profile by curating ancient artifacts, and only performing heroic acts incognito. But soon, Diana will have to muster all of her strength, wisdom and courage as she finds herself squaring off against Maxwell Lord and the Cheetah, a villainess who possesses superhuman strength and agility.
Wonder Woman 1984 will be showing at 1 p.m., 4 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 2-3.
News of the World will be showing at 1:15, 4:15 and 7:15 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 2-3.
News of the World is a moving story written and directed by Paul Greengrass.
Five years after the end of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Hanks), a veteran of three wars, now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news of presidents and queens, glorious feuds, devastating catastrophes, and gripping adventures from the far reaches of the globe.
In the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with Johanna (Helena Zengel, System Crasher), a 10-year-old taken in by the Kiowa people six years earlier and raised as one of their own. Johanna, hostile to a world she’s never experienced, is being returned to her biological aunt and uncle against her will.
Kidd agrees to deliver the child where the law says she belongs. As they travel hundreds of miles into the unforgiving wilderness, the two will face tremendous challenges of both human and natural forces as they search for a place that either can call home.
Tickets cost $7.50 for matinee and children and adult prices cost $9.50 after 4 p.m. Reserve your seats at https://smokymountaincinema.com.
