Council member
opposes ‘X' movie

By John Wampler

Despite a few hold—ups. the
show went on this weekend at
the Kentucky Theatre.

The theater. which had
planned a Friday-through-Sun-
day showing of the X-rated film
Disco Dolls in Hot Skin. met
with some surprising last-
minute opposition. which ulti-
mately didn't stop the film from
being shown.

The controversy began on
Friday. when Urban County
Council member-at-large Scott
Crosbie tried to persuade May-
or Pam Miller to block the film
being shown.

Many UK students didn't
agree with Crosbie‘s attempt to
shut the theater down for the

“It seems stupid to try to
shut porn down in one place
when you have another porn
theater in town.“ said Matt
Thompson. an English and an-
thropology junior.

HOWever Crosbie said that


the reason that he wanted the
film to be stopped was that the
film was being shown in what
he said was a publicly subsi-
dized theater.

“You can buy it at the book-
store or go to the video store.
but we’re not gonna have this
trash playing in a public facility
on Main Street." he said.

Fred Mills. manager of the
Kentucky Theatre. said that
(‘rosbie was mistaken in his im~
pression that the theater is pub-
licly subsidized.

Urban County government
pays no money for the theaters
operation. he said. In fact. every
time the theater takes in mon-
cy. a percentage goes to the gov-
ernment. Mills said.

The Kentucky Theatre Cor-
poration. in which Mills is a
member of. manages the theater
for the Urban County Govern-
ment. which owns it.

Despite Crosbie‘s efforts.
the movie played to a sold-out
crowd on Friday. According to
the terms of the current con—
tract. the mayor has no control
over the movies shown at the

theater. Mills said.

The saga didn‘t end with
the first night. however. Shortly
after the Friday night showing
ended. the theater was raided
by Lexington-Fayette (‘ounty
police. and the film was seized.

Mills said that while the of-
ficers seizing the film were not
explicit about the charges being
made. a comment was made
that having a retail beer license
and showing material such as
Disco Dolls was against the law.

Mary C. Noble. Fayette
County Circuit Court Judge.
ruled that the film had to be re-
turned, since no official finding
of obscenity had been made.

Mills and the theater were
still charged for distribution of
obscene material. and there is
the possibility of additional
charges being made if the film
shows tonight.

“We‘re standing up for the
First Amendment rights of the
citizens of Lexington.“ Mills

Medicare spending drops slightly

WASHINGTON 'l‘reasury Department fig-

cal year 1999. the first decline ever in the federal
program that pays health care bills for 39 million
Americans. Expenditures dropped to $212 billion
in the fiscal year ending Sept. :it). frotn $213.6 bil-
lion in the prior year. Experts attributed the
drop to cuts mandated by Congress. more careful
billing practices by health care providers and a
crackdown on fraud. But they said that Medicare
spending is unlikely to continue falling because
the elderly population is growing.
