Featured Movie: The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials


This thrilling, fast-paced, and action-packed sequel to the Maze Runner brings new surprises every minute. The Maze was impossible, but now Thomas and his fellow Gladers find themselves in an almost too welcoming facility that claims to oppose the organization, WICKED (World In Catastrophe: Killzone Experiment Department). In this facility, the Gladers learn that they were not the only ones put in a maze by WICKED and join other survivors to share their experiences. Every night at dinner, Thomas and his friends observe that survivors are suspiciously taken away by men in the facility for an unknown reason. However, with a bit of investigating, the group learns that the men are actually working alongside WICKED and are conducting dangerous experiments on the children they take away. Upon learning this, the small group of Gladers along with a few other friends escape the building, only to find themselves stuck in a barren land known as “The Scorch”. However, not all hope is lost! The group hears rumours of a resistance called “The Right Arm”, who hopes to stop WICKED and is located across the Scorch. Follow Thomas and the others as they bravely attempt to cross the Scorch, encountering tough obstacles such as zombie-like creatures, lightning storms, and drunk goths to reach safety and fight back WICKED.
