Charleston, South Carolina IMAX - still burying its head in 6,000 year old sand
Apparently refusing to see the light (unlike her Texas contemporary Carol Murray), Liza Buzzelli of the Charleston, South Carolina IMAX has yet to alter her programming schedule to include screenings of "Volcanoes of The Deep Sea" - despite the windfall revenues she might earn in light of her controversial comments to the NYT reporter Cornelia Dean.
'We have definitely a lot more creation public than evolution public,'' said Lisa Buzzelli, who directs the Charleston Imax Theater in South Carolina, a commercial theater next to the Charleston Aquarium. Her theater had not ruled out ever showing ''Volcanoes,'' Ms. Buzzelli said, ''but being in the Bible Belt, the movie does have a lot to do with evolution, and we weigh that carefully.''
Apparently when it comes to the weighing the potential of controversy-inspired windfall revenues against the principle of caving into Creationist censorship pressure, Liza has chosen the latter.
This is a principled stand Liza, but what of your responsibility to your company's shareholders? Don't they deserve a slice of that revenue?
If you are a shareholder of the Charleston IMAX cinema or you happen to live in Charleston, South Carolina and don't mind the odd bit of Darwinist blasphemy, why not drop Liza a line.
