So I’m all a-flutter with anticipation for the opening of Expelled – two days to go to the big day on which Darwinism will finally fall. To prepare, I checked Yahoo Movies for the screening times in my area.
What’s this? Only two cinemas are brave enough to show it? The AMC Mesa Grand and the AMC Arizona Center. Strange. I wonder why Harkins (the big-dog in Arizona theaters and host for the infamous Tempe screening) has not picked up such a cultural tsunami? And look at this! Both AMC theaters have only one screening scheduled for Friday (a.k.a The Big Day). At 10:30am. Wow, that’s sure to draw the crowds. Still, there’s always Saturday and Sunday to make this the biggest documentary opening EVAR!
Update: It looks like Harkins Arizona Mills is scheduled to show the movie. And there are now multiple screenings. Three theaters – ten shy of the 13 that they are claiming it seems.
