Will Captivity Lose Rating Over Party Decor? MPAA Threatens

captivity071007.jpg

The MPAA not only is responsible for movie ratings, but also functions as a neighborhood decoration police force. Or at least for the corner of Sunset Blvd. and Laurel, where Privilege is located. Seems the Captivity party planners had thriftily used those left-over billboards to wrap the outside of the building for the much-anticipated event.

At 6:30 Tuesday evening, producer Courtney Soloman got a call from Marilyn Gordon who threatened to pull the film’s rating if the offensive images were not removed. So, the sheets were pulled down and wrapped around various interiors of the club. He told FBLA that he’s expecting a call early Wed. morning from the MPAA.

How Gordon found out about the party isn’t any mystery, but does the MPAA have spies at the Virgin Megastore? Maybe Jill Soloway was sitting across the street all day?
