The New York City branch of the Austin-based theater chain tweeted a clarification about the hoax Friday morning. It’s unclear where the image originated from.
The image below promoting a BLACK PANTHER screening at our theater is FAKE. This is a Photoshop hoax and did not originate from any official Alamo Drafthouse account. pic.twitter.com/YoswbuIAHu— Alamo Drafthouse NYC (@AlamoNYC) February 9, 2018
