Be careful where you spend your Milk money this weekend, guys. According to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Proposition 8 contribution tracker (sfgate.com/webdb/prop8), Cinemark CEO Alan Comstock — a Plano resident — donated $9,999 to ProtectMarriage.com in support of banning gay marriage in the state of California. A website (nomilkforcinemark.com) and accompanying Facebook group urge moviegoers who support the gay-rights movement to see the film at another theater. At publication time, the group had more than 25,000 members all pledging to see the film at a non-Cinemark location, a boycott that could potentially cost the theater chain hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost ticket sales.
If you’d rather not give anyone your money, the Instituto Cultural de México en San Antonio (600 HemisFair Plaza; institutodemx.org) will host a free screening of Secuestrada, 7 p.m. Thursday, December 11. The film, directed by Juan Carlos Hernández and shot in San Antonio, is based on the true story of a woman kidnapped by a serial killer in Venezuela.
And if you’d rather not spend money or leave the house, The Cleto Show, a variety/sketch/talk-show mashup starring SA comedian Cleto Rodriguez debuts 11 p.m. Saturday, December 13, on Fox KABB (air channel 29).
