Finally, on Sunday June 27th we will show Hachi.  Hachi is an American remake of the story of an extremely loyal dog named Hachi-ko (literally 8th pup) who would meet his master everyday at the Shinjuku metro station in Tokyo, Japan.  Even after his master passed away, he waited at the station every day for his beloved master. During his daily visits he touched many lives and taught the local people about love, compassion, and above all unyielding loyalty. Definitely a touching story for dog lovers.   It stars Richard Gere and Forest the dog.  It is rated PG and gets excellent reviews!
