  1. The most disingenuous line from the whole piece

    >Cineplex declined an interview request. In a statement, a spokesperson said: “Ultimately, it is up to film distributors where they play their movies.”

    Ya of course it’s up to distributors. If they want it to be the last film they ever sell to cineplex they’ll go ahead and let it run at the Rio. But if they’re ever interested in having a film on our screens again they know the rules. But hey man it’s their call.

    That’s like saying suicide is always a choice available to everyone.
