Ironweed Films, the DVD-of-the-month club using movies to rally audiences
around progressive social and political issues, launched an online
petition (www.ironweedfilms.com/brokeback) today urging Larry Miller to
put Brokeback Mountain back on the schedule of his theater in Sandy, Utah.

Miller’s theater unexpectedly pulled Brokeback Mountain from its schedule
this past weekend. (See “Utah Theater Cancels Brokeback Mountain“)

Sign the Petition to Let Brokeback Mountain Play!

The Megaplex theatre in Sandy, Utah has pulled the pathbreaking film
Brokeback Mountain from its screens. The decision by the Megaplex, which
is owned by Larry Miller, who also owns the Utah Jazz basketball team,
could signal the beginning of a trend to try to turn people away from this
powerful and important film.

At Ironweed Films our mission is to help films like Brokeback Mountain –
genre-breaking films that are masterpieces – get seen. We hope you’ll join
us by signing our petition to Larry Miller to let Brokeback play.

I enjoy reading your website. I too am a gay man in my 40’s dealing with depression. I’ve been on medication for 4 years and it’s been the best 4 years of my life. There have been struggles but I’m a much better person than I was before. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you overcome your depression and anxiety.

Thank you!!!
