Will try to make this short. Went to 1:50 show today. After sitting there for over an hour, they could not get it to show. Gave us our money back plus 2 free tickets we could use anytime. They said it would be shown again at 4 in another room. We went to it but had to see all the stupid promos again, who in the world sees that trash. The crowd was much smaller then too, 40 to 50 ?
We did enjoy it but knew much of it. Sure would recommend it, especially to fence sitter's.

Saw it this afternoon with 2 friends. Stadium style seating and no one was down below but the upper section was at least 80% full. Applause at the end in Apex as well! I hope they all vote. I talked to several folks after Mass and they asked what I was doing this afternoon. I mentioned the movie and none of them even knew it was out there emoticon These are people who have not yet decided how they will vote but tell me they are "investigating" the candidates. Don't know how hard they are looking for facts if they don't know about the movie. I don't think they watched the convention either. I plan on asking them to come along with me, as I will definitely pay another $7.00 to get them at least thinking about how they will vote. I liked that the birth certificate and the lack of college records were not addressed. They are too obvious an omission. Better to explain how he has arrived at his view of the world and our position in it.

AND the ticket guy mentioned that he hadn't seen it yet but when he would be there to clean the theater, people were leaving like they had been "reborn"! Again, let hope they all vote!

I agree with everyone here, but also want to say besides a full theater, the audience clapped at the end!

We saw the movie here in Charleston last weekend and we were thrilled to see the theater PACKED.

I just checked on Fandango to see if they would still showing 2016 after tonight. They had said last week it would show through August 30. I am happy to say that it will STILL be showing in my area through next week 5 showings a day! emoticon

I saw this movie on Sunday and thought the movie was done in a tasteful and nonsensational manner. It shows a glimpse into Obama's motivation that is not shown in the media. This is very important for all to see!

We saw the movie on opening day in our city, and the theater was nearly full. much of the information was old to us, but i loved the way D'Souza presented it in a way that was not degrading to obama, but rather revealing in the way he has developed his ideology and his desire to diminish our country's standing in the world. it is well worth the time and money to see this movie. Better yet, take a liberal friend or family member and discuss it afterward.

I went to see the first showing in my area on Friday. I agree it was old/new to me and perhaps to most that were in attendance during that showing. Lots of information, but I thought it was put into a package that did not put the president into an unfair light. It showed a comparison that would show us his childhood which we could then compare to our own. The president had a childhood that had him growing up in places most of us have not been and really don't understand where as Dinesh D'Souza grew up in a place that had its parallels to that of the president. We have different influences in our lives and I think it fairly showed how those influences can help form different worldviews. My hope is that people will go with an open mind to learn more about this man and his background as well as his plans for us. It was a very well done documentary.

I saw the movie this afternoon with a friend. Most of it is old new, but presented by an immigrant from India makes it very interesting.
My friend, however, found it very informative and there was information she hadn't heard before.
The main point of the film is that Obama is bound to mire us in poverty, every one of us, because the United States is guilty of Colonialism. That guilt is on every one of us. That is why he is giving our money to South America, and supporting countries in the East.
Have you seen it? What do you think?
