Alamo Drafthouse's women-only Wonder Woman screenings violated Austin anti-discrimination laws

Well waddaya know: a few months after Alamo Drafthouse held women-only screenings for the Wonder Woman movie, it turns out they violated Austin's equality laws (Hat tip: Hot Air):
Promoting female-only “Wonder Woman” screenings was a violation of Austin’s equality laws, the Alamo Drafthouse acknowledged in a letter to the city last month. [...]

The city processed two formal complaints against the theater for the two female-only screenings in June, one from Albany, N.Y., law professor Stephen Clark and the other from an unidentified man, claiming sex discrimination. City equality laws ban a public accommodation such as a movie theater from limiting its service, or indicating through advertising that it will limit it, based on race, sex, sexual orientation or other factors.
Interesting. I haven't found any comics sites reporting on this, and if not, it's clear their own leftist agendas are getting the better of them. Anti-female discrimination is very bad, but so too is anti-male discrimination, and that wouldn't jibe well with the original comics either. So will Alamo Drafthouse learn their lesson and never try something like that again? Let's hope so, because they really screwed up.

Labels: , ,

They are now holding a clown-only screening of the movie IT, based on the Stephen King novel.

Non-clowns have a just casue of complaint.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
