The presence of Ms. Lipscomb in “Fahrenheit 9/11” and her telling of her story provided some very moving moments. Mr. Moore’s film is brilliant, and it is important that every voting American see it, whether at a “cinema treasure” or the nearest multiplex.
It should be known that R.L. Fridley, the owner of several movie theaters in the midwest, is refusing to show the film “Fahrenheit 9/11” because he believes it “incites terrorism.” If he could move beyond his own narrow political standings, he would understand that this film is a movement against our presidents inadequacies and sympathizes with people who have lost family members due to terrorism. I call on all of you who value a full understanding of our government, not just what you see on the news to watch this film . Ms. Lipscomb is an amazing woman and her association with Michael Moores film should not be tainted with the accusation of terrorism.
Mr. Fridley’s attitude is a sad one, but the film is playing to box-office records at about 1700 theatres nationwide right now. To find out where it is playing in your area, click on:
