Pan's Labyrinth Limited Release

Update: My city is now listed on the official website even if I can't find a theater claiming to run it. We'll see what happens, but maybe the studio is making some progress on getting the movie out for people to see.

You know, there's nothing more annoying than the pathetic movie studio system where they milk every penny they can get out of the theaters, then move to pay-per-view, and finally pick up the scraps with DVD sales/rentals. I really would like to see Pan's Labyrinth, and it's one of a very few movies I want to see at the theater. But as far as I can tell, it's not going to be showing where I live...ever. By the time it comes out on DVD, I may not care about seeing it anymore, or maybe I will care. Either way, it's a stupid move by the studio to alienate potential fans who could earn it more money by good word of mouth and positive reviews.
