Jane Fonda’s movie, “Monster-In-Law” may be number one at the box office, but don’t ask Ike Boutwell his opinion. A former Vietnam vet and the owner of two movie theaters in Kentucky refuses to show it in his establishment no matter what the financial cost is to him personally.
The owner of two Kentucky theaters has refused to show the new Jane Fonda film “Monster-in-Law” because of the activist role the actress took during the Vietnam War.
Ike Boutwell, who trained pilots during the Vietnam War, displayed pictures of Fonda clapping with a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft crew in 1972 outside the Elizabethtown Movie Palace to show his disapproval. The marquee outside Showtime Cinemas in nearby Radcliff reads: “No Jane Fonda movie in this theater.”
Just proving the theory once again that past actions do have consequences. Or as Ike says,
“I think when people do something, they need to be held responsible for their actions”. “When you give the enemy aid, it makes the war last longer.”
