'Sicko' makes early appointment


Michael Moore's heathcare documentary "Sicko," which is to roll out nationwide June 29, will open a week early on Friday in New York City, where it will play an exclusive engagement at the AMC-Loews Lincoln Square Theater. Additionally, public sneak previews of the film will be held at more than 40 theaters around the country on Saturday.

Following Monday's night's premiere of the film in New York, Weinstein Co. cochairman Harvey Weinstein, said, "Ever since the film began generating tremendous word of mouth we have been contemplating opening 'Sicko' in one theater in New York City and sneaking the film in the top markets across the country, and last night validated that plan."
