Drive-in theater cancels Beauty and the Beast movie
An Alabama theater has canceled plans to show the upcoming Beauty and the Beast movie at its drive-in theater because of a scene shot by film producers to introduce young minds to homosexuality. The scene, not true to the original story, reportedly comes towards the end of the film and is something the film producers "are proud of."
The Henagar Drive-In Theatre in Henagar, Alabama, announced that the theater won't be showing the film as planned because its operators are "first and foremost Christians" and "will not compromise on what the Bible teaches."
The announcement came Thursday night by the theater in response to Disney's announcement of the overt gay scene inserted into the film, untrue to the original story. The theater announced on Facebook,
"If we cannot take our 11-year-old granddaughter and 8-year-old grandson to see a movie we have no business watching it," the message said... "We will not compromise on what the Bible teaches."
