Wonder why movie theaters are losing money?


A Times Square movie theater laid an egg at a showing of “Chicken Little” last night.
Adults and kids expecting to watch Disney’s G-rated animated flick at the AMC Empire 25 theater on 42nd St. were instead presented with a foreign film that opened with a young man committing suicide.

“It’s pandemonium,” Joshua Gallo, 30, told the Daily News as he rushed out of the theater with his 5-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter. “The kids are crying. The mothers are screaming for the managers to stop the film.”

Bush: Hate to stay I told you so


Fewer than half — 40 percent — said Bush was honest and trustworthy. Separately, 67 percent rated his handling of ethics in government negatively and fewer than half called him a strong leader, another first, according to the poll.

Sixty percent of Americans disapproved of his overall job performance, which ABC said was “a level unseen since recession chased his father ( George Bush) from office.” That compared with a 39 percent approval rating, the poll said.

Nicely done!
