Movie theater removes lesbian kiss warning sign in ‘Lightyear’


KINGFISHER, Okla. (KOCO) — A movie theater in Oklahoma turned heads with a warning sign about Pixar’s new movie “Lightyear.”

The panel said the theater would fast forward to a scene briefly showing a female character kissing her female partner.

The sign said “ATTENTION. Attention Parents: Theater management discovered after booking “Lightyear” that there was a gay kissing scene within the first 30 minutes of the Pixar film. We’ll do our best to move quickly through this scene, but that may not be accurate. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this late discovery of this scene.

The owner of the 89′er Theater later reversed that decision, removing the sign and stating that the film would be played without interruption.

The parents at the theater said they had no problem with the scene. Jill Stuever, who brought her two sons to see the film, said the kiss wasn’t a problem for her.

“Watching him was okay,” Stuever said. “It was like two seconds. Maybe a second if you were really careful.

Lilly Jiles, who brought her 5-year-old to see the film, agrees.

“I thought it was good,” Jiles said. “I’m fine with all kinds of different families.”

However, Jiles said she can understand why the theater put up the warning sign in the first place, saying the theater probably just wanted to be transparent with the audience about the film’s content.

“I think they just wanted to be honest with people,” Jiles said.

“Lightyear” hit theaters on Friday.
