Only Clowns Can Attend This Special Screening Of Horror Film ‘It’ – HuffPost

Just what a film fan wants to see: a movie, surrounded by a bunch of Bozos.

But thats what will happen Sept. 9 when a movie theater in Austin, Texas, hosts a screening of the new horror filmIt for clowns only or people willing to dress like one.

The clown-centric screeningwill include face painters for last minute touch-ups, a photo booth, raffles and other terrifying merriment, according to the Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas website.

Since the movie, which is based on a Stephen King novel, features a creepy clown-like figure named Pennywise, perhaps the theater decided it would be pound foolish not to appeal to its more fun-loving patrons.

The clowns-only screening is also a jab at the outcry the Alamo Drafthouse faced earlier this summer when it hosteda screening of Wonder Woman for women only. Entertainment Weekly noted that one Facebook commenter sarcastically asked if the theater planned a male only screening for Thor: Ragnarok or a special screening for It thats only for those who identify as clowns.

The theaterwrote back, We might actually have to steal that clown idea.

The September event is already attracting hilariously snarky comments on the theaters Facebook page.

Be prepared for the backlash from the non-clown crowd that is angry that youre creating this safe viewing space for all the snowflake clowns, one person warned. Oh wait, that was the insecure dudes and Wonder Woman. My bad.

Another commenter washalf expecting some mimes to cry, or sign, boycott, at a clowns only showing.

Then there was the guy who asked if the theater planned to invite serial killers only for the screening of the next Hannibal film.
