DENVER — Two women-only screenings of “Wonder Woman” scheduled this week in Denver and Littleton have sold out despite upsetting some male customers.
“Apologies, gentlemen, but we’re embracing our girl power and saying ‘No Guys Allowed’ for one special night,” Alamo Drafthouse stated on its website.
“The most iconic superheroine in comic book history finally has her own movie, and what better way to celebrate than with an all-female screening?”
Tickets for the women-only event at the Sloan’s Lake location on Monday and the Littleton location on June 7 were no longer available as of Tuesday.
Initially, Alamo Drafthouse announced one women-only screening in Austin, Texas. When it sold out, the chain decided to add more times and locations, including in Dallas, Washington and Denver.
It wasn’t long before men started complaining of discrimination in the comments on Twitter and Facebook. However, Alamo Drafthouse made it clear it wasn’t bothered.
Officials said a portion of the proceeds from the women-only screenings in Denver and Littleton will be donated to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.
