Events We're Glad We Missed

Seriously - does Disney know about this - that this group has shoehorned itself into this screening? It sure seems extraordinarily counter-productive to the company, knowing that this group has been blatantly trying to block showings of F911 before they've even seen it - and that Disney is under the microscope for jettisoning F911 as being blatantly political.

(SACRAMENTO) -- Move America Forward is teaming up with Walt Disney Pictures to present an exclusive screening of Disney's "America's Heart & Soul" on Monday, June 28, 2004 at the Crest Theater in Sacramento, California.

Fahrenheit 9/11 Receives Chilly
Reception from Movie Theaters

(SACRAMENTO/SAN DIEGO/SAN FRANCISCO) - Michael Moore's propaganda flick "Fahrenheit 9/11" is getting a chilly reception from skeptical movie theater operators.

A month ago Moore and his partners, Lions Gate Films and IFC Films, had claimed that more than 1,000 movie theaters would be showing his anti-war 'documentary.' Soon thereafter they claimed "around" 1,000 theaters would pick up the film. Then that number changed to 700. In the last few days that number had dropped again to "at least 500." As of today, a review of the film's website showed that only 417 theaters would show the film - and most of those are poorly attended "art house" theaters.
Yup, that AMC 20 Multiplex that needed three screens to handle the crowd I went to is a renowned art house, showing little handmade films like "White Chicks," "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," and "Shrek 2."


By the way, these jackasses have gone and invented a new holiday as well...

National Support The War On Terror Day:

Saturday, September 11, 2004
Nice of them to use the anniversary of the most tragic day in our nation's modern history to launch their Support The War On Terror Day. We need more wars against an emotion, as opposed to the terrorISTS.

I'll mark that day 'cuz 9/11 is a day we'll all so easily forget, you festering sores.
