((NATS FROM FILM)) The film by Michael Moore takes a look at President Bush's behavior before and after September Eleventh. It includes a montage of a vacationing Bush - implying laziness and conversations with members of Congress who don't seem willing to enlist their children in the military. The Grandin Theatre Foundation has posted a statement on its box office window that reads, in part. [INSERT PRE- PRO HERE] "Art is often provocative. Varying view points are part of our democratic society. The Grandin Theatre has shown films that may have generated controversy related to the point of view expressed, but we feel the opportunity to view these films is part of our mission."
