MONDAY MOVIES at The Wayne

Until further notice, all Movies at the Wayne are virtual/at-home experiences. Our featured, classic films will include a special video introduction by Jimmy Overton (Jimmy O) and each Monday, we invite you to watch Jimmy's introduction (to be made available here) and on our social channels, and then enjoy the film at home via Blu-ray, DVD, or through the streaming service of your choice (such as Netflix).

Our film introduction, provided by Jimmy O, will be available each Monday, here, and will include insight and commentary for each featured film.

This week's film is:

Empire of the Sun (1987):

Steven Spielberg directs a young Christian Bale in a stunning feature-film debut as Jim, a British expatriate who's separated from his parents when the Japanese army invades Shanghai at the outset of World War II. Eventually interned in a civilian prison camp, Jim hooks up with several American prisoners (led by John Malkovich) and becomes the camp mascot. Elsewhere, war tidings grow ominous for the Japanese.
