MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee has been selected as one of five cities for an early premiere of an HBO film.

“The Normal Heart” stars Kenosha native Mark Ruffalo as well as Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons and Alfred Molina.

It’s based on the Tony Award-winning play by Larry Kramer and is about the AIDS crisis in early 1980s New York.

The movie will be shown at the Landmark Oriental Theatre on May 21.

Milwaukee was selected along with Atlanta, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco to see the film before it airs May 25 as part of a partnership between Milwaukee Film and HBO.

HBO spokesman Mike Hopper says Milwaukee is one of the top markets for “Game of Thrones” viewership, so there is a definite audience for HBO in Milwaukee.
