There are some things I will never do. Those things include meth, Gary Busey, and attending a screening of a clown-based horror film with a room full of creepy a** clowns.
The usually lovely Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX, has announced they will be hosting a clown-only film screening of the new adaptation of Stephen King’s It. You can only attend if you’re dressed up as a clown. Seriously.
Check out the press release:
“For this special screening of It, all attendees should arrive dressed as a clown in order to attend. Please arrive early and join us in the Barrel O’ Fun beginning at 5:30pm for an It pre-party where we will have face-painters available for clown ‘touch-ups’, a photo booth, raffles for prizes, and other terrifying merriment. Please arrive in your own Pennywise best and be ready to float with us.”
This horrifying event will go down on Sept. 9. The movie is scheduled to be released on the 8th, and that’s when I’ll be watching it. Even if you hated yourself and wanted to attend this event, it’s already too late.
The event sold out in less than an hour. By the way, this event is only happening because a bunch of whiny a** dudes complained about Alamo Drafthouse’s women-only screening of Wonder Woman…
“When outraged men bombarded Alamo Drafthouse with insults and cries of unfair treatment over its women-only screening of Wonder Woman, one angry Facebook commenter mockingly asked if there would be a clowns-only screening of It. Instead of feeding the trolls or blocking the user, though, the theater replied and thanked the user for the great idea.”[mashshare]
