No Milk For Cinemark: Don’t See Milk at H8 Theater

Posted on 19 November 2008 by admin

NoMilkForCinemark.com is a new site trying to go beyond a boycott of Cinemark Theaters to specifically ask people NOT to see Milk, the eagerly awaited film about Gay pioneer Harvey Milk, at a Cinemark Theater. The CEO of Cinemark, Alan Stock, donated $9999 to the Yes on 8 Campaign, and the site is outraged that the company will now profit from showing MILK in his theaters.

Of course we’re all going to see Milk though! The site proclaims, “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”

Cinemark owns 2700 screens in 13 countries in North and South America, including the brands Cinemark, Century, CinéArts, and Tinseltown.  There is also controversy around a Cinemark theater being used as one of the primary screening venues for the Sundance Film Festival.

Targeting Mormons Unfair?

Equality California estimates that Mormons donated as much as $20 million to Prop. 8, while the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal group, gave $1.25 million to the effort and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, $200,000.
