MJ 'Moonwalker' Screening No-Go

1/20/2011 2:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Another crushing blow to Michael Jackson fans ... TMZ has learned the MJ estate has blocked an L.A. movie company from finally screening "Moonwalker" in an American theater.

Michael Jackson Moonwalker

The ArcLight theater had been on the hunt for a film print of the 1988 cult-classic ... but was having trouble because the film was never officially released in theaters in the U.S.

Now, ArcLight explains ... "We have bad news. It's not available" ... adding, "We contacted the films directors and producers and were finally directed to MJ's estate attorney. They let us know the estate has the rights, but 'have no plans to make... prints available for rent at this time.'"

However, the estate didn't slam the door on the idea of releasing it in the future ... so keep your fingers crossed.

So.

Some theater owner loses out on making a "one-night showing" windfall in revenue - you know they were going to charge some astronomical ticket price, as the fans around there have obviously lost their minds and would pay it seeing as they were clawing at the owner to get their hands on it, right? - on a 23 yr. old movie that can be had for free online for years now - simply because, they wanted to see it on a viewing screen bigger then the one they can afford to put into their own homes.

I assume that the family has figured how to get more money for the thing. In my opinion...I could care less about the Jackson trash.

Big deal. This was just a diversion to keep the fans from talking about MJ's murder. No protest needed if they are NOT going to show a film that was blocked decades ago anyway. Murray killed Michael Jackson in cold blood. It was first degree murder!

aww that is such a shame. How about a public screening of the 'one more chance' video.....nice, sensible, sedate production...very calming. The way he sits down on that chair just makes me want to sip tea. I Find Michael Jackson completely intellectually challenging as he dances on the table...some may find it erotic, but not me!! Truly!

OK, lets establish a couple of guidelines....

1) MJ is dead
2) MJ was a child molester
3) MJ is in HELL....read the bible!
