Cinemark and the Milk Protests



Thanks to James Sheldon for making me aware of this. I’ve previously blogged about the release of the film Milk (and pretty fantastic it looks too) and now a protest group has been established to boycott the cinema chain ‘Cinemark’. According to http://www.nomilkforcinemark.com/, the CEO of Cinemark, Alan Stock,donated $9999 to the Yes on 8 Campaign, but will now profit from showing MILK in his theaters.

The site goes on to estimate that if 1,000 people 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.
