Days after saying his one-man show, an "October surprise" in the "heart of Trump Country," was banned in the Columbus area, controversial documentary filmmaker Michael Moore announced on Facebook that he's found a home for it in the Dayton region.

Moore plans to perform free shows at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6 and Friday, Oct. 7, at the Murphy Theater in Wilmington.

In a Facebook post Sunday, Moore said  Newark's Midland Theatre "banned" him from presenting and filming the show there next month. 

The Columbus Dispatch reported Tuesday that Midland's operators say Moore was not banned. They said the decision not to finalize the contract was based on several factors.

Moore's films include "Roger and Me," "Fahrenheit 9/11," "Sicko" and "Where to Invade Next."
