The board of a popular Montgomery independent theater has blocked the showing of a documentary about former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman because it contains “defamatory” information about a board member, the theater’s director told al.com.
A group had rented the Capri Theater and planned to show the film, titled “Atticus v. The Architect: The political assassination of Don Siegelman,” next month.
But on Monday, Capri’s director, Martin McCaffrey, told al.com that the board voted to rescind that rental because the pro-Siegelman film portrays board member Leura Canary “in a false and defamatory way.”
