There is a very simple reason for this: Whether you like it or not, Hannah Montana is insanely popular amongst young 'uns and teenagers, while the U2 Goes Home special that ran at U.S. thanksgiving a few years back (showing an hour's worth of songs from the Slane show) was the lowest rated program EVER for whichever network ran it. This is about theatres knowing what butters their bread. No reason to take it so personally.

Besides with lots of releases, it's common for distributors to run a flick in a few markets to see how it does before deciding how wide the release should be. So if U2:3D is really all that and a bag of chips (and I'm just as interested to see it as the rest of you), eventually it will be playing on as many screens as possible.

It's not her 'popularity' that has me riled. It's the fact that U2:3D is being YANKED from my theater. The poster was up and everything...

It's also the fact that Disney is falsely advertising their Hannah Montana special as the first of its' kind that irks me. U2 has put a lot of time, effort, and money into this film, only to be upstaged by some teenybopper that Disney has decided is the new Hilary Duff(who was the new Britney, etc, etc, etc)?
