Boycott: Cinemark's CEO Supported Prop 8, Won't Be Getting My 'Milk' Money

Cinemark CEO Alan Stock donated $9,999 to the YES on Prop 8 campaign that stripped marriage equality from the California constitution.

Cinemark CEO Alan Stock, a Utah Mormon, donated $9,999 to the YES on Prop 8 campaign that stripped marriage equality from the California constitution.  Cinemark operates the Century, CineArts, and Tinseltown theatres throughout America.  Many of these theatres will screen Gus Van Sant's biopic "MILK" about our legendary San Francisco supervisor, a martyr of the gay rights movement, Harvey Milk.

You can tell Mr Alan Stock you won't see "MILK" at one of his theatres:

You can join the Facebook No-"MILK"-for-Cinemark boycott right here. As I write this in mid-afternoon, there are more than 800 members; they are hoping for 1,000. That would deny Cinemark $10,000 at $10 per ticket. I bet we can get the Facebook membership way over 1,000 -- please invite all your Facebook friends to join.  

Cities everywhere are noticing the Cinemark boycott: Orlando; Chicago; Albuquerque; MovieBears in San Francisco, Seattle, London, Cincinnati, Fort Lauderdale, Minneapolis, Washington D.C., Phoenix and Chicago; Sacramento; and Los Angeles. If your local media has noticed the boycott, please put a link in the comments!
