The article quotes Associated Press. I cant find it anywhere there (edit *on the AP news site * edit) this R.L. Fridley seems to be a phantom. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough. Anyone seen anything of this from a credible news source?

The site just looked so cheesy with the Police
State stuff on the side. [now I have more reading to do on Alex Jones...feel like i just got homework from seeALL *wink*] I have found it on Des Moines Register linked thru the AP site.

Here is a quote from the theater owner. Full article link follows.

"Our country is in a war against an enemy who would destroy our way of life, our culture and kill our people," Fridley wrote. "These barbarians have shown through (the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001) and the recent beheadings that they will stop at nothing. I believe this film emboldens them and divides our country even more."

Wow.
A privately owned company decides not to show a movie and we don't live in a free country anymore?
I can tell you you're not allowed to come over my house and watch any Disney movies if I want, and that has nothing to do with a "free country."

Get it?

He owns 34 theaters in IA & NE.
Those areas are covered by the cinema giants like AMC & GCC. Never fear, nobody's rights are being trampled on here....
except maybe the private buisiness owner who's getting lambasted for choosing which films to show at the theaters he owns.

I wonder if that guy showed "Passion of the Christ", wouldn't that movie incite violence against Jews?

Although I would love more anti-Bush proof. It is true that it is privately owned. It is his choice, but I think it is a pretty pathetic choice

I just found out the movie will not be seen where I live in the south, but what you expect this is a republican state and like some has said where is the democracy when we are told what to see and when, I feel like my first amendment has been taking away from me to many times.

Here you go some other news articles.

The Oregonian


R.L. Fridley, owner of Des Moines-based Fridley Theatres, says the controversial documentary incites terrorism.


Theatre chain bans Michael Moore doc

Hey it is a free country. Theater owners have the right not to show the film, just as you have the right to go elsewhere to watch it. Personally I will wait until it comes out on video.

The reason why they will not show it in those theaters is because they can't face the truth, in my opinion.

I wonder if that even matters as in a free capitalist system a business owner would have the ability to exercise control over his business.

Talk about freedoms getting stripped away.

I may not be able to see Moores movie because the our local cinema with not showed but I will tell you they shoved the "Passion of the Christ" Anyway they were able to shoved, every day on the local news, and billboards around the city from local Churches, to giving books free so you will join their study on "The passion of the Christ" groups, and that is ok, Jesus is not more myth than the so call lies of Moores film.

No ofense to the Jesus believers on the forum.

as the sole owner, it's Fridley's right to decide not to show whatever movie he wants in his theatres. however, i think his reason that the movie will incite terrorism is pathetic, unfounded, and indicative of the fears which work in the current administrations' favor. i've seen F911 and, while i didn't like it very much, i can hardly see how it 'incites terrorism', unless your definition of 'inciting terror' is simply being critical of bush. should a private business have the right to decide for americans what terror is?

Guys, it's IOWA! Population 12 potato farmers and all George Bush voters.

I'm mixed on if the movie should be played or not. On one hand I see the rights of the movie theater. If I personally owned a theater then I have the right to play the movies that I want.

However, more and more movie theaters are not owned by an individual. Movie theaters tend to be owned in large chains like most of the media outlets in America. So, it's really not the (ma and pa) theater owner making a personal decision to not show the movie, but it is Corporation X, telling movie goers that they will not show this movie because it incites Terrorism - which is utter bullsh*t.
