It all started when the Austin plcae announced plans for an all-female screening on Jun 3 on their Facebook page. But some people took to the comments to complain, essay things like “have you ever hosted a men’s only showing of any film?” and “Imagine the sh–storm if there was any male only showing of anything…or a private showing for a specific race or passionate orientation…Nah, it’s SJW approved.” Other people pronounced they would compensate for men to come and contend they brand as women.
The Alamo Drafthouse began responding with comments like, “We’ve never finished showings where you had to be a man to get in, but we *did* show the Entourage film a few years ago” and “thanks for the money!”

So lasso your geeky girlfriends together and squeeze your tickets to this jubilee of one of the many fast and moving characters ever created.”
