Chains yank Christian-funded movie

Following last week’s terrorist attacks, several movie chains have decided
not to screen the Evangelical Christian production Megiddo: The Omega
Code 2
,
which has an apocalyptic theme, the online entertainment
magazine Inside reported Thursday.

A spokesman for General Cinema,
one of the chains that has banned the film, told Inside: “Considering
it has a theme of the apocalypse, and a scene of the Coliseum in Rome
exploding, we felt the timing wasn’t appropriate and could disturb some of
our patrons.”

Other chains that have balked at running the film include
United Artists, Edwards, Pacific and Loews Cineplex. However, AMC, Regal and
Cinemark say they no plans to pull it.
