R.I.P. Free Popcorn Wednesdays at Wehrenberg Theaters.
If you are a moviegoer near one of Wehrenberg’s 16 multiplexes, and you have ever been on a Wednesday – chances are you have enjoyed a free popcorn. For the last two years members of Wehrenberg’s free rewards program, MVP (Movie Viewer Program), have been able to show their card at the concession stand every Wednesday and receive a complimentary medium popcorn (around a $7 value). As of December 18, 2013 the program ended.
“When you look into their eyes, you know somebody is home. Somebody’s looking back.” - John Jett, Former SeaWorld Trainer
Those words, spoken by a former trainer in Blackfish, drive home a point that many, many people can easily forget – this is not a person in a costume, not an animatronic figure that is timed to move to the music. It’s a living entity… and the star of this particular feature has killed. 3 times.
Blackfish, directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, is not a sensationalistic spin on the deadly killer whale (hardly deadly, as there is no record of a killer whale attacking a human in the wild, according to the doc) or an activist piece, bent on dismantling and destroying the zoological park system.
Rather, the film is centered around Tilikum, SeaWorld’s 12,000-pound male orca that killed trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010 – the third death attributed to him – and those who have worked closely with him over the years. This includes one of the whalers who stole him from his family as a baby, the caretakers and employees of the Canadian aquatic park he first presided at as a young calf (where he suffered abuse from all sides, including other, larger killer whales) and the half-dozen former SeaWorld Trainers who have come forward to dispel the myths and offer their testimony.
