    This movie schedule is wrong. We showed up at the Medlock 18 and were told the movies played on Weds, not Tues and Thursday. Hope this didn’t happen to anyone else.

    Kenna, I apologize that there was a problem with my schedule. I am sure your children were disappointed and that really bothers me. Thank you for the information. I have updated the schedule to reflect the correction you mentioned.

    If anyone else finds an error, please let me know so that I can correct it as well.
