Michael Moore's 'Capitalism' Movie Disappears From Cineworld & Odeon Listings

Yes, for it came to pass that the chief gatekeepers of the movies that we the public are allowed to see – Odeon, Cineworld and Showcase – have essentially banned the new Michael Moore movie from appearing nationwide. Why am I not surprised?

You can still see it at smaller, local and art-house movie theatres. In Glasgow, for example, it will be on at the Glasgow Film Theatre, an independent holdout from the corporate-owned megaplex chains. The trouble is that the GFT has a small auditorium with a limited number of showings per day (and a higher ticket price), which of course effectively erases it from the mainstream. I guess it was all fine and dandy when MM was criticising health provision (Sicko), gun culture (Bowling For Columbine), or the response to 9/11 (Fahrenheit 9-11), but to come out with a film analysing the fault-line corruption at the heart of corporate capitalism? – oh, that’s a no-no.

Clearly, at some point it was scheduled. And suddenly it wasn’t. That’ll be the magical pixies of the free market at work, then.

    I’ll wait for the DVD-unless the Freemasons supress it. Looking forward to reading Seeds of Earth but disagree with your Mooredolatry

    Yes, and we`ll have to look out for the Rosicrucians and them pesky Shriners too. Now, you must excuse me but I have to go and sacrifice some Hershey bars at the foot of my 50-foot Michael Moore statue. Don’t be a stranguh! ;-)
