After Alamo Drafthouse announced “women-only” screenings of the recently released “Wonder Woman” movie, the theater chain gained national attention. Some praised the theater for its decision to send a message of female empowerment, while others — including a New York attorney who filed a complaint with the City of Austin — claimed the screenings were discriminatory.
It seemed like it was only a matter of time before men decided to take matters into their own hands and host their own “men-only” screening of a “dude” movie. Well, it’s happened — and yes, it happened at the Alamo Drafthouse.
A San Antonio radio station’s morning show crew reportedly decided to host a men-only showing of “Metallica Through the Never” on Thursday, featuring “dude seating” (which apparently means there will be one empty spot between each seat) and a “dude Q&A” session with “dude-only questions,” whatever that means. It was invite-only, but some dudes on Twitter managed to snag a ticket to the ultra-exclusive bro event.
