Why We Fight scheduled for Phoenix

According to Harkins Theatres main office, the Eugene Jarecki documentary Why We Fight is scheduled to open at the Camelview 5 in Scottsdale Fashion Square on Friday, 24 March. Here's a synopsis from its entry at IMDB.com:
Is American foreign policy dominated by the idea of military supremacy? Has the military become too important in American life? Jarecki's shrewd and intelligent polemic would seem to give an affirmative answer to each of these questions.

Dwight D. Eisenhower may have been the ultimate icon of 1950s conformity and postwar complacency, but he was an iconoclast, visionary, and the Cassandra of the New World Order. Upon departing his presidency, Eisenhower issued a stern, cogent warning about the burgeoning "military industrial complex," foretelling with ominous clarity the state of the world in 2004 with its incestuous entanglement of political, corporate, and Defense Department interests.
In the meantime, you can also view Why We Fight online at Information Clearinghouse. (Runs 1 hour 39 minutes.)
