Many theaters across the US are cancelling the Christmas Day opening of the controversial comedy film, “The Interview”… even the local movie theaters of Bowtie Cinemas in the Capital District are cancelling it too. Are movie theaters doing the right thing or are they cowards for letting the so-called, “terrorists” win?
I would have to say that movie theaters are doing the right thing. A threat like that should be taken very seriously. The Guardians Of Peace may or may not be “real” terrorists but ya never know. It’s a good idea to cancel the film’s opening release date just in case ’cause you never know that if you go to the theaters there could be bombs all over the theaters in America.
While it doesn’t look like a good movie anyways, it’s the best thing to do to take these threats very seriously. It’s a good idea ’cause I would do the same thing if I owned a movie theater.
You just never know if bombs were planted all over the theaters or someone could walk in with a suicide vest or a plane flies over and drops missiles on a theater. Any of that can happen.
I wouldn’t want to go to a movie theater that day when all of this is going on.
I will still see “The Interview” though, just not in theater. I’ll wait for rental on that one.
