Showing at the Dells Theater

dolphin_tale_twoHeld over through October 9th!!

“DOLPHIN TALE 2” — This family comedy adventure stars Ashley Judd, Morgan Freeman and Harry Connick, Jr. The film continues the true story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and recovery—thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail—made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie Dolphin Tale. It has been several years since the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital rescued Winter. Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, according to USDA regulations, dolphins cannot be housed alone, as their social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium. “Dolphin Tale 2” starts Friday at the Dells Theatre and is scheduled for one week through Thursday, October 2. 107 minutes. It’s rated PG for some mild thematic elements.

NEW TUESDAY SPECIAL!! Every Tuesday when you buy any size popcorn, you get the same size drink free!!
  • Every Wednesday get double stamps on your director’s club card!! Earn points for free snacks and free movies that much faster on Wednesdays! Director’s Club cards are free and available at the box office.
  • With the start of school, we have switched to our “winter hours”. There will be 9:00 shows on Friday and Saturday nights only.
