When Alamo Drafthouse decided to host a few women-only screenings of the first-ever film starring a female superhero, Wonder Woman, sensitive men (and boys) across the country were up in arms in response what they saw as a sexist move by the cinema chain. Some filed lawsuits and others sent seething comments and letters to Alamo Drafthouse and even the mayor of Austin, crying discrimination and “civil rights” violations.
In response to the criticism, Alamo was light-hearted (“We *did* show the Entourage movie a few years ago”) and said men wanting to book a male viewing should “go for it.” So radio host Billy Madison of the Kiss 99.5 station in San Antonio did just that. He planned a men-only screening of Metallica Through the Never for last night and rented out the cinema space. His event was not an Alamo Drafthouse-sponsored affair.
“It’s just a fun event making fun of the women’s-only screening of Wonder Woman,” Madison told the San Antonio Express-News.
He wanted to make sure the event was a total dude-only space, so he advertised it would have a “dude Q&A,” “dude seating” (which, of course, means an empty seat between each dude), and a “No Girls Allowed” sign on the door.
In other words, a place no women would want to hang anyway.
