Owner of Cinemark gives $9,999 to Prop 8, and now stands to profit from ‘Milk’
How many ways of wrong is this? CEO of Cinemark, Alan Stock, who gave $9999 to Yes on 8, be allowed to earn one dime on the back of Harvey Milk’s legacy by running Gus Van Sant’s “Milk” in his theaters (it opens wide on Nov. 26)?
If 1,000 of us commit to see MILK at a competitor’s theater instead of Cinemark, at an average cost of $10 per ticket, that’s $10,000 of lost revenue.
Boycotts work. A boycott of a Sacramento theatre company resulted not only in the resignation of a Yes on 8 contributor, but a public apology and donation to Human Rights Campaign! We can do this again.
You can find an alterative theater using the links on the left, and join our facebook group below to spread the word! Help us reach 1000 members so we can send a message to Mr. Stock: YOU WILL NOT PROFIT FROM HATE.
The movie houses to avoid are “Century”, “CinéArts”, and “Tinseltown” theater chains.
