Movie Bears’ Boycott Is Small Growl in Larger Gay Roar | NYT

Barbary Coast - Movie Bears’ Boycott Is Small Growl in Larger Gay Roar - NYTimes.com:
"The Bears are social, not political, and with a mailing list of 1,500 names can amass a jovial group of hundreds for a single screening. But when Alan Stock, the Cinemark chief executive, gave $9,999 before last year’s referendum election in support of stripping gay couples of the right to wed, the claws came out.

Since then, the members have adopted an ABC approach to moviegoing: Anywhere But Cinemark. Which explains why the Bears were at AMC Theaters to watch “Wild Things,” instead of across the street at the rival Century Theaters, which are owned by Cinemark."

If you're in San Francisco, please join the Bears and give them your support!
