Opening today

Star Trek Beyond

Star Trek Beyond,” like most of the rebooted properties flying around our movie theaters, delights in nostalgically resurrecting iconic characters and tweaking them anew. (Coyle/Associated Press)

Rated: PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action and violence.

Playing at: Eastside 9, Lafayette 7, Wabash Landing 9

Ice Age: Collision Course

It’s a shame this is a kid’s movie and you know the main characters are destined to succeed. It wouldn’t make the movie good, but at least a meteor strike would preclude the possibility of a sixth “Ice Age” film. (Van-Denburgh/Gannett) Rated: PG for mild rude humor and some action/peril.

Playing at: Eastside 9, Lafayette 7, Wabash Landing 9

Lights Out

‘Lights Out’ is scary enough to make you keep the lights on. (Goodykoontz/USA Today Network)

Rated: PG-13 for terror throughout, violence including disturbing images, some thematic material and brief drug content.

Playing at: Eastside 9, Lafayette 7, Wabash Landing 9

Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party

Documentarian Dinesh D’Souza analyzes the history of the Democratic Party and what

he thinks are Hillary Clinton’s true motivations.

Rated: PG-13 for some violence, thematic elements and smoking.

Playing at: Eastside 9

Continuing

Finding Dory

So much of the dazzle of “Finding Nemo” was the colorful richness of its aquatic life: sharks in recovery, pelicans interested in dentistry, Willem Dafoe’s battle-scarred striped fish. (Coyle/Associated Press)

Rated: PG for mild thematic elements.

Playing at: Eastside 9, Lafayette 7, Wabash Landing 9

Ghostbusters

“Ghostbusters” makes some winks to the uproar that preceded his gender-swapping film, but it mostly steers straight ahead, too busy being funny to worry much about misogynist detractors. (Coyle/Associated Press)

Rated: PG-13 for supernatural action and some crude humor.

Playing at: Eastside 9, Lafayette 7, Wabash Landing 9

Infiltrator

? ? EE

“The Infiltrator” might have done well to take a page from “Argo,” which knew to let the characters service the story, instead of using the story to service the character.

(Bahr/Associated Press)

Rated: R for strong violence, language throughout, some sexual content and drug material.

Playing at: Eastside 9, Wabash Landing 9 Legend of Tarzan

No review available.

Tarzan, having acclimated to life in London, is called back to his former home in the jungle to investigate the activities at a mining encampment.

Rated: PG-13 Playing at: Eastside 9, Lafayette 7 Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates

? ? EE

The cast is gifted at generating laughs, but there is a mean-spiritedness to the film that derails it. (Goodykoontz/USA Today Network)

Rated: R for crude sexual content, language throughout, drug use and some graphic nudity.

Playing at: Wabash Landing 9 Purge: Election Year

No review available.

Years after sparing the man who killed his son, former police sergeant Barnes has become head of security for Senator Charlie Roan, a Presidential candidate targeted for death on Purge night due to her vow to eliminate the Purge.

Rated: R

Playing at: Wabash Landing 9 The Secret Life of Pets

??? E

It’s fun to imagine what pets get into when no one is home, and “Pets” does a great job of taking that idea to an extreme. And you thought Fluffy and Fido just spent the day napping. (Bahr/Associated Press)

Rated: PG for action and some rude humor.

Playing at: Eastside 9, Lafayette 7, Wabash Landing 9

BENTON COUNTY CHIP AND SEAL JUNE 27TH

Indiana Department of Transportation News Release
Chip and Seal Operation begins Monday on State Road 352
Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate route

BENTON COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will have lane closures on State Road 352 beginning on or after Monday, June 27, weather permitting. S.R. 352 will be chip and sealed from U.S. 41 to U.S. 52. Motorists are encouraged to seek an alternate route.

Depending on weather conditions, crews will be on site from 7:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Work is expected to last through Thursday, June 30.

INDOT crews will be applying a chip-seal treatment to preserve and protect just over eight miles of S.R. 352. Loose stone will be on the highway temporarily during the initial cure of the asphalt. Motorists are encouraged to seek an alternate route. Drivers are urged to slow down and allow additional space between vehicles to prevent stone chips from damaging windshields or paint on auto bodies.

Once the chip seal has cured, crews will sweep the highway to clear away loose stone and apply a light application of dark asphalt material to lock in remaining stone and minimize dust.

About Chip-Seal Projects

After years of heavy traffic and winter freeze-thaw cycles, small cracks develop in our highways. If left untreated, moisture seeps into these cracks and form potholes when the water freezes and expands. As the name implies, a chip-seal treatment seals off the cracks. The stone chips provide improved traction for stopping, especially during winter.

During 2015, INDOT employees used more than 86,000 tons of crushed stone and 17,000 tons of liquid asphalt – a total of $12.7 million in operational resources – to apply the seal-coat to more than 1,200 lane miles of state roads. INDOT estimates that using in-house crews instead of contracting the work saved taxpayers nearly $8 million. National research has shown that every $1 used to preserve our pavements saves $6 to $14 in future, more disruptive repairs.
