Default 'The Butler' Won't Be Shown Here

I find it interesting the young man in the video said he was disappointed it won't be shown because of the history he would learn from it. What I would suggest to him is to sit down with this Korean War vet if he wants to learn about real history. I won't be viewing this film based on the fact that another 'O' is in it.. I just can't stomach either one of them.

Kentucky theater refuses to show 'The Butler' because of Jane Fonda | Fox News

A central Kentucky theater owner is refusing to show the nation's top movie.
Ike Boutwell, who owns MoviePalace and Showtime Cinemas in Elizabethtown, told The News-Enterprise that people who want to see "The Butler" will have to go elsewhere.
Boutwell says he won't show the popular flick about a butler who served eight U.S. presidents because it has actress Jane Fonda in it.
He said Fonda's statements and demonstrations against the Vietnam War caused him to view her as a traitor, and he won't show any movie involving her in his theaters.
Boutwell is a Korean War veteran who trained pilots during the Vietnam War.

If you are learning history from Hollywood movies you are doing it wrong.

Speaking as someone with a fair background in History I would have to say that while one can indeed learn history from a movie, I would not place it as one of the more important or reliable vectors of communication. A Hollywood film would be about as acceptable a source as your garbageman. It might have some useful, possible even factual, information to impart, but I would rather seek out other sources, the more the better, to fully understand the history of the matter.

Next you gonna tell me "300" wasn't a factual historical record? Oh noes!

Anyway, fun sticking the knife in Fonda this way. Why don't you go to the opening in Hanoi, Jane?

No, "300" was totally fucking real. Honestly, why would you have even suspected anything else?

I thought that '' here come the spartans'' was the factual record of the battle.
