Ok, I get a better picture of your situation. You have the "we only have a multi-plex" problem. If we only had one, there would not be a showing of "Brokeback Mountain." In my small city, all the multiplexes are owned by the same company. I think that makes them feel they can "take a chance" by showing an "iffy" film of one of the two dozen screens. Otherwise, they certainly wouldn't do it. "Munich" is an Oscar-contender, too. Directed by Spielberg! It is playing on one screen only out of all the multiplexes. Other films (The Squid and the Whale; Capote) that I would like to see will not play here at all, I am sure. I only saw "Everything is Illuminated" because I was in Indianapolis for the LotR exhibit. There is an itty-bitty independent theater there, a total hole-in-the-wall in a strip mall, that showed that film. That was how I was able to see it. EII didn't even play Minneapolis-St.Paul, I think, a metropolitan area of millions, and lots of college students.

Ah, it's epidemic.
