Local theaters stumble

I have been looking forward to seeing "Death of A President" for months. Recently I had a day off, so knowing that the movie was just recently released, I thought I would go see it.

I found out that the closest town playing the movie is Sacramento. What is wrong with the theater chains in this town? How can it be that they find it objectionable to run "Death of a President," but will show movies like "Silent Hill" or "Wicker Man"? I guess It's OK to make money off the close-up portrayal of a child or adult being burned alive. But it's not OK to make money off the less graphic "death" of a man who is responsible for the deaths of many children and adults.

I will buy "Death of a President." I will probably not spend my money at the local theaters this year.
