Huntsville’s CBS affiliate reports:
The owners of the Henagar Drive-in Theatre in DeKalb County say they are taking a stand in regard to a new Disney film. They have taken to social media to make the announcement. The post to the theatre’s Facebook page points out the drive-in has new owners as of December, and those new owners have changed their criteria for how they choose what they will show on the big screen.
“If we can not take our 11 year old grand daughter and 8 year old grandson to see a movie we have no business watching it,” states the post. “If I can’t sit through a movie with God or Jesus sitting by me then we have no business showing it.”
The owners are referring to the news from Disney that the new live-action film will debut its first openly-gay character. “We are first and foremost Christians. We will not compromise on what the Bible teaches. We will continue to show family oriented films so you can feel free to come watch wholesome movies without worrying about sex, nudity, homosexuality and foul language. Thank you for your support.”
