Alamo Drafthouse’s Women-Only ‘Wonder Woman’ Screenings Were Illegal

Article here. Excerpt:

'Alamo Drafthouse’s women-only screenings of “Wonder Woman” that garnered massive attention and positive news coverage may have been against the law. Despite acknowledging complaints, the company has declined to issue a proper apology.

In June, theater chain Alamo Drafthouse announced it would be holding women-only screenings of “Wonder Woman” in select theaters. The media predictably cheered on the company’s feminist-centric marketing.

Stephen Miller, a writer for Heat Street, made the headlines and upset feminists on the Internet when he bought tickets to attend the movie at its women-only screening in New York City. Amid the outpouring of cheers, complaints, and “yas kween, slay!” support on social media, it turns out that Drafthouse was in violation of anti-discrimination laws in Austin, Texas — one of the cities where the theater held such a screening.'
