You Are NOT Going To Believe This

We've previously discussed how Mormons are adverse to the F-bomb, Jack Daniels, arterial spray, and Sex And The City. You would think then, when thinking about movies, that these non-predilections would cut Mormons out of a great swath of filmed entertainment. Apparently they themselves have noticed this, and have struck.

I had heard about this place from a Mormon FO who was big into theater, and I thought he was yanking my chain. But it's real; it's actually a few blocks from my apartment. Here's how it works: you submit your DVD copy of Dead Alive, Robocop, or The Exorcist that you've never seen (but inexplicably still own), and in two weeks they sell it back to you, having scanned through it and slashed out all the profane/violent/erotic scenes. Like I said, you don't even believe this.
As a post script, you'll notice the place is dark and seemingly uninhabited. That's because, strangely enough, Hollywood took issue to having its babies surgically rearranged without its permission, and so are currently suing the bejeezus out of this place.
Oh my heck.

One of my wife's family friends hails from that part of the world, and they have a version of "Titanic" that has been "cleaned up".
