Hi I have been waiting to see this movie since I’ve seen then add for it on TV . What is the deal, will it be shown in the Akron ,Ohio Area? I check the on line theaters and not one within 15miles or more is showing this movie. I have even called theaters. They tell me it is a limited release what is that? Everyone is showing the Gay cowboy movie which I would not go to see if you paid me. It looks good to me from what I can see of it. If it is not going to be shown in this area why is it on TV? IF it will not be in this area, I will stop looking for it. Please advise if you would.

You wouldn’t see BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN if someone paid you? What if Magnolia Pictures sent you a free DVD? Would you watch it and write us back what you thought of it if we sent it to you totally for free? We’ll even tape a one dollar bill onto the case, so we actually would be paying you to see the movie. Let us know.
Also, THE WORLD’S FASTEST INDIAN is playing RIGHT NOW at the Regal Montrose 12 in Akron.
