JUST SO YOU KNOW, BEN, THIS CHAIN IS CENTRALLY OFFICED IN GEORGIA! – I wouldn't mind having the opportunity to see Brokeback Mountain (liked Ang Lee's gay-themed comedy, The Wedding Banquet). But Carmike Theaters, the big-ass chain which has a strangle-hold on all the multi-plexes in my part of Central Illinois isn't running it. (But, hey, the chain's showing Hostel so what have I got to grouse about?) I'm so glad that the wiser heads at Carmike (Hey, look, the second Big Momma's House is comin'!) are there to save me from my own debased tastes . . .
UPDATE/CORRECTION: Three weeks later, and it looks as if the University Cinema in Normal, Illinois, is showing the movie after all. Though, amusingly enough, when you go to Carmike's page featuring synopses of all the movies that the chain is supposedly showing, Brokeback Mountain is nowhere to be seen. A stealth campaign, no doubt.
