CHICAGO – Michael Moore, again pushing the hot button, interrupted the scheduled 7:15pm showing of “Pelham 1-2-3” at Chicago’s AMC River East Theater on Friday, June 12th, with a publicity stunt and teaser for his next documentary.

The yet-to-be-titled film, due to open on October 2nd, 2009, obviously will take on the current bailout situation for American companies and banks, and the concurrent exploit in Theater 13 hammered home the point.
