Now Showing: 2016: Obama's America

Spencerblog was shocked to find the new documentary 2016: Obama's America is showing at the AMC Theater at Granite Run Mall.

Isn't showing an unflattering political documentary this close to the election a violation of campaign finance laws and the U.S. Constitution? Wow! We're going to see it before the feds show up and close down the theater.

Oh wait. The Citizens United case made it clear that the federal government couldn't restrict political speech, no matter how much it offended certain politicians in our political class.

We're going to see it anyway. If we can get in. Apparently, it's drawing a pretty good audience.

UPDATE: Just the film this afternoon. It was surprisingly well attended, mostly by senior citizens. Big crowd for a Monday afternoon. And, get this, they burst into applause at the end.

I will be columnizing on this for Wednesday paper. Stay tuned.

I saw the movie this weekend at 4pm on Saturday (8/25). I parked at the AMC at Granite Run noticing a healthy amount of cars but nothing overwhelming. I thought with multiple movies going on, there were only be a few people in each show.

Turns out the movie about Obama was PACKED? They all must have been there for the show. 4/5 of the theater was consumed. I had to sit in the very back. Only other seats were 4 rows from the screen.

I think we need a special Spencerblog event with post-game analysis at the Riddle Ale House.

Sure hope it hits Comcast On Demand or Netflix soon. Maybe both. Whoops---Comcast & NBC ??? They'll never let it see the light of day...
