‘Sicko’ premieres at Smith Opera House

“Sicko,” filmmaker Michael Moore's dissection of the American health care industry, showing how it benefits the few at the expense of the many will be screened at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, Monday the 24th, and Tuesday the 25th, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 23 at the Smith Opera House, 82 Seneca St.

Moore has chosen fat targets before — corporate bullies, gun fetishists, war profiteers — but with “Sicko,” he's got his biggest and most entrenched target yet. “Sicko” is his most assured, least antagonistic and potentially most important film.

This galvanizing, infuriating and sometimes heartbreaking look into the red tape-snarled morass of American health care is rated PG-13 and has a running time of 1:53 minutes. Presented as part of The Smith's “Hot Docs 07” documentary film series, tickets are $5 general admission and $3 for students and senior citizens, and will be available at the box office.
