OAKS - Moviegoers will be riding a wave to the Regal Cinemas Marketplace 24 as the theatre will be preparing for the opening of "Surf's Up" this weekend.

Based on the groundbreaking "revelation" that surfing was actually invented by penguins, "Surf's Up" stars the voice talents of Shia LaBeouf; Jeff Bridges; Zooey Deschanel; Jon Heder; James Woods; Diedrich Bader; and Mario Cantone.
