What a sad day for those of us who love movies.

The five biggest movie theater chains in America - Regal Entertainment, AMC Entertainment, Cinemark, Carmike Cinemas and Cineplex Entertainment have all decided against showing "The Interview".

This comes in the wake of a threat of terrorist acts against anyone who shows the film.

Despite the fact that the Department of Homeland Security says they have found no evidence of a credible threat, those in charge of our biggest cineplexes are caving.

How sad.

We once stood up to the greatest threats the world has ever known.

Now, all it takes is a weak threat for people to throw up their hands.

This is a huge mistake and will have an effect on Hollywood and what we watch for a long time to come.

I'm beyond disappointed. I am sad and angry that we are allowing our rights to be tossed away at the first sign of trouble.

What do the rest of you think?
