MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Milwaukee is one of five cities where an HBO cable movie will get an early premiere.  

"The Normal Heart" will be shown May 21st at the Landmark Oriental Theatre, four days before TV viewers get to see it.  

The film stars Kenosha native Mark Ruffalo along with Julia Roberts and Jim Parsons.  

"The Normal Heart" reminds us what the AIDS crisis was like in New York when the disease was first discovered in the early 1980's. The film is based on a Tony-award winning play by Larry Kramer.

Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, and Atlanta will also have early premiers. Milwaukee was chosen as the result of a partnership between HBO and the Milwaukee Film organization.  

HBO also cites high viewership of its movie channels in southeast Wisconsin.
