The Salt Lake Tribune -- Liberals line up for early look at 'Fahrenheit 9/11'

The Salt Lake Tribune -- Liberals line up for early look at 'Fahrenheit 9/11': "NEW YORK -- How can you prove that you are a real liberal? Apparently by being among the first people to see Michael Moore's 'Fahrenheit 9/11.'
In line on Tuesday night for the midnight show at Loews Village VII at Third Avenue and 11th Street in Manhattan were about 200 people, more than enough anti-Bush and anti-war factions to fill theaters for both a midnight show and a 12:15 a.m. show. (If there were Republicans in the group, they must have been stealth operatives.)
On Tuesday afternoon, Nick Anderson went online to purchase tickets for Friday, when the two-hour movie opens nationwide. Anderson, 22, was surprised to see tickets available for the 12:15 a.m Wednesday showing.
'We wanted to see it as soon as possible,' he said, standing outside the movie theater with a friend. 'This is easier for people to understand than reading books, reading newspapers or watching C-Span.'

But after seeing the movie, Katie Bachler, 22, a recent graduate from Occidental College in Los Angeles, said she was inspired to think about politics again."
