Fonda Film Banned From Ky. Theaters
May 17, 6:47 PM EST


The Associated Press

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky -- The owner of two Kentucky theaters has refused to show the new Jane Fonda film "Monster-in-Law" because of the activist role the actress took during the Vietnam War.

Ike Boutwell, who trained pilots during the Vietnam War, displayed pictures of Fonda clapping with a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft crew in 1972 outside the Elizabethtown Movie Palace to show his disapproval. The marquee outside Showtime Cinemas in nearby Radcliff reads: "No Jane Fonda movie in this theater."

Both theaters are just a few miles from the Army post of Fort Knox, south of Louisville.

"I think when people do something, they need to be held responsible for their actions," Boutwell said. "When you give the enemy aid, it makes the war last longer."

Fonda has apologized for being photographed on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun, but not for opposing the war.

"Monster-in-Law" raked in more than $23 million last weekend as the top-grossing movie across the country, according to Exhibitor Relations Co. Inc. and Nielsen EDI Inc. In the film, Fonda plays Jennifer Lopez's villainous prospective mother-in-law, trying to stop Lopez from marrying her son.

Sal Mancuso, an Elizabethtown resident, said he personally thanked Boutwell for not showing the film.

"I think Vietnam veterans appreciate this," said Mancuso, who fought in the Mekong Delta during the Vietnam war. "There is no defense for what she did."

Boutwell also banned previous Jane Fonda films, as well as Michael Moore's film, "Fahrenheit 9/11."

The guy was interviewed on Fox News this afternoon. He came across really well. His main argument was he was a trainer and that the image of Fonda cheering on the North Vietnamese is still stuck in his mind because the people she was cheering were the same people that were killing his trainees. In the interview he said that almost all the comments he has gotten have been positive just a fraction of 1% of been negative.

If he were closer I would drive there to see a movie but it's over a 2 hour drive to get there for me.

He's also saying lots of folks are buying ticket certificates & giving them to some of the Ft. Campbell soldiers. Kinda cool, IMO.

Here's a beer salute to him!

Way earlier than that. I would say around 2 or 3 in the afternoon. The guy I work with has XM radio and we listen to Fox News 8 hours a day while working.

Word!!! Someone sitting on the enemy's AAA that's killing American airmen is something I'll never understand. If that isn't treason, I don't know what is. Fonda is one of those people on my list that if I see in person I'll bitchslap.

This movie was showing at the theatre in lexington when I went to take my kids to see "kicking and screaming" (good movie by the way).

My daughter said she wanted to see that movie...I told her "not if I have anything to say about it" and then proceeded to relate the story of the communist traitor &itch to the kids.

They now understand but I will relate it to them with pictures soon.

Notice how the headline is "Fonda Film Banned", as if they KY govn'r stepped in and blocked all theaters from showing this movie.
