(Associated Press) A Central Kentucky theater owner who trained pilots during the Vietnam War is refusing to show the nation’s top movie, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, because one of the stars is Jane Fonda, who was an outspoken opponent of the conflict.

Ike Boutwell, who owns MoviePalace and Showtime Cinemas in Elizabethtown, told The News-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/16QB9Er) that people who want to see The Butler will have to go elsewhere.

In the movie, about a butler who served eight U.S. presidents, Fonda portrays former first lady Nancy Reagan.
