Michael Moore saves the movies!
Michael Moore is a very polarizing figure and is bound to create controversy wherever he goes (gee, betcha didn't hear about his recent trip to Cuba), but one thing we can all agree on is that the guy loves movies and is willing to do anything to preserve cinema as an artform, including rescuing a decrepit one-screen theater in Traverse City, Michigan, so that the residents have a chance to see limited release arthouse flicks they usually wouldn't have the option to. He will only show movies released on less than 200 screens nationally, which I think is a great idea.
Someone mind coming to my town and doing the same?
And just so there's no bones about it, I cannot wait for Sicko.
