Drafthouse Wonder Woman Screenings Bring Out the Trolls
Whether it be Girlie Night screenings or Tough Guy Cinema, the Alamo Drafthouse has often taken a playful approach to gender in its booking philosophy. However, now it's riding high above some criticism that it's holding a women-only screening of Wonder Woman early next month.
