Michael Moore’s anti-Trump film to screen locally Nov. 6

Cincinnati's audience gets an exclusive Skype interview with Moore.


Michael Moore in TrumpLand, the film the provocative documentarian released less than two weeks after staging and recording a two-night October performance at Wilmington, Ohio’s Murphy Theatre, has gotten a just-announced single (so far) Cincinnati screening.

It will play at the Esquire Theatre at 5 p.m. on Nov. 6, to be followed by a Skype question-and-answer audience discussion with Moore, exclusive to Cincinnati. Tickets are $15 and available at esquiretheatre.com.

At the Murphy in Wilmington, Moore humorously discussed with his audience why voters in the swing-state of Ohio needed to support Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the presidency to avoid a Trump victory.

The hurriedly edited film premiered Oct. 18 at New York’s IFC Center. It was then followed by a regular run at that movie complex and one in Los Angeles, as well as being made available on iTunes. It did so well in limited theatrical release that it has been booked for regular runs in many other cities, including Columbus, starting on Oct. 28.

Moore had first planned to stage his live show at a theater in Newark, Ohio, but it was canceled. Moore has claimed it succumbed to pressure from Ohio Republicans and banned him.

In the film, according to news reports, Moore says he fears the unqualified Trump will be elected because the middle-class is disgusted with the political establishment. But he warns about the repercussions of such an act, according to Yahoo News.

“You used the ballot as an anger management tool — and now you’re fucked,” Moore addresses Trump supporters in the film. “You wanted to send a message. You had righteous anger. And justifiable anger. Well, message sent. Goodnight America. You’ve just elected the last president of the United States.”
