This just in from Slog tipper Annie:
Hi Stranger! I have a bit of local theater marquee news for you. I was invited by a friend to go see the Landmark screening of Inglourious Basterds last night at the Guild 45th theater, where the staff put "better than the holocaust" on their marquee! Supposedly after complaints, they sent someone out in the wee hours of the morning to change it—it says "Brad Pitt" or something equally mild now. I have to admit I was pretty schocked when I saw the marquee last night, wondering how long it would stay up. I was also wondering what kind of manager would let their staff put such a crazy insensitive marquee up!
And oh yeah—Annie sent a picture:
