When it comes to the anti-Obama film produced by Bigfork, Montana’s Jerry Molen, the headline at The Hollywood Reporter says it all. “Box Office Report: Anti-Obama Doc Drawing Big Crowds, Even in New York City.”
As it turns out, a listener from Helena tells me that you can also catch the film on the big screen in Missoula, Montana of all places.
Here’s more from The Hollywood Reporter:
An anti-Barack Obama documentary based on conservative author Dinesh D’Souza’s book The Roots of Obama’s Rage will expand nationwide this weekend after doing notable business in select markets across the country — including in liberal-minded New York City.
Overall, 2016: Obama’s America grossed an impressive $1.2 million last weekend as it upped its theater count from 61 to 169 for a total gross of $2 million, the second-best showing of the year for a documentary after Bully ($3.2 million). That doesn’t include nature documentaries Chimpanzee ($29 million) and To the Arctic ($7.6 million).

Movie Critical of Obama Opens in Kalispell
Bigfork resident Gerald Molen made national headlines when he was told that he would not be allowed to the senior class at Ronan High School earlier this year. The reason? His conservative politics. All this, even though Molen did not plan on giving a political speech.
Nonetheless, Molen’s latest endeavor involves his role as producer of the anti-Obama film “2016: Obama’s America.” The film opens up tonight in theaters across the country, including Kalispell.
The Daily Inter Lake has the details:
A new movie that is critical of President Barack Obama and was produced by Bigfork resident and Oscar-winning filmmaker Gerald “Jerry” Molen opens this Friday at Signature Theaters in Kalispell.
The movie “2016: Obama’s America” is based on a best-selling book called “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” written by Dinesh D’Souza. The film first screened in Houston and Los Angeles with a wider opening this Friday.
The Daily Inter Lake added that Molen will be in attendance at the screenings tonight in Kalispell. Click here for more details.
