    I might just go to theater when W comes out..maybe see american carol again, with my humorous anti-liberal shirts I have. Always love to see the reactions people make when they read them

    In Virginia we call South Carolina "the land that time forgot."

    Old times there were not forgotten......

    Is this the personal choice of a theater or chain of theaters? Or is this the government forcibly not letting it be shown?

    Somehow I don't think it is the latter... but I don't think that plays in to your "big brother" theory much...

    I'd like to say that I am not sure but.. Ive had to cross picket lines to see the last temptation of christ, and our IMAX was shut down shortly after airing a movie that spoke of shhhhh.. evolution... I seriously think its just the proprietors that dont want to raise the ire of our local jesus and george lovin nutjobs..

    Well... they have to answer to heir purse strings... and if it hurts their bottom line to offend a majority of people who would be their customers.. then that is a decision they have to make

    Right. Your not being able to see "W" is a Rovian plot. :cuckoo:
    Why can't you just wait a couple of weeks for when it comes out on DVD?

    Last I checked Movie theaters are private enterprises and the Owners are free to pick and chose what they will or will not show.

    I suggest you complain to the OWNERS of the theaters in your area. Why you could even write the paper about it. But claim Government had anything to do with it is retarded.
