How could you say it's not about censorship? Did he pull the movie a few hours before opening?hanglowejohnson said:The point isnt that the movie was censored. The owner made a decision not to show it. That is more overriding than his "moral" need to show it. His right to choose how his business operates is just that a RIGHT... we dont have the RIGHT to see a certain movie. We have the CHOICE to see it somewhere it is being played.
I dont see an issue with it. Of course, this thread isnt about the theatre owner making a choice within his/her rights, you (all) are making it into censorship, which it is NOT.
Did he pull it because of subject matter?
Do ALL economic signs point to it being a profitable movie, even in conservative areas?
All answers are yes.
And yet, a movie about torture is ok?
Messed up priorities.
