The CEO of Cinemark, the company that operates 2700 screens internationally including the only movie theatre used at the Sundance Festival in Park City, Utah, has reportedly donated a large sum of money to support Prop 8, the ballot initiative that eliminated gay marriage in California. Alan Stock donated $9,999 in late October to proponents of the measure.

Cinemark, whose branding goes by Century Theatre, CineArts and Tinseltown, has a few locations in the Los Angeles area including North Hollywood, Long Beach and Orange County.

Restaurants and hotels have already been subject to boycott discussion this week.
