In 'Blackfish,' a psychological profile of a killer -- whale
The weekday matinee showing of “Blackfish” drew about 30 paying customers in a theater with seats for 250. Mainly older couples, though there was a trio of brawny guys, so big they seemed unlikely to fit into a single seat each, wearing muscle shirts that showed off the tattoos that thoroughly covered their arms, and joking nonstop. Not the likeliest audience for a documentary about captive whales, screening in an art cinema.
