Box office boycotting

No Milk For You

After much anticipation, Milk, the Sean Penn biopic about celebrated San Francisco politican Harvey Milk, arrives in theatres next Wednesday (and goes into wide release Dec. 5).

Well, not all theatres. You won’t be able to find the film playing at any of Cinemark’s 2,700 venue. Perhaps that’s because the company’s CEO, Alan Stock, happened to write a cheque for $9,999 to the Yes on 8 campaign, as we noted earlier.

Use sites like Fandango or Yahoo! Movies to locate theatres other than Cinemark in your area in case you’re looking for some Daniel Craig or Twilight goodness.

(Unless you’ll do something like not see Twilight because the book’s author, Stephanie Meyer, is Mormon, and will supposedly donate 10 percent of all the cash she earns from it to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.)

Spend your gay dollars appropriately.
