Wonder Woman women-only screenings in Texas spark row

A cinema chain in Austin, Texas, has caused uproar after scheduling women-only screenings of Wonder Woman.

The big-budget superhero film, which stars Gal Gadot, is set for US release on 2 June.

And on 6 June, the Alamo Drafthouse has reserved two showings for those who identify as female.

“The most iconic superheroine in comic book history finally has her own movie, and what better way to celebrate?” organisers said.

A post on the Alamo’s website read: “Apologies, gentlemen, but we’re embracing our girl power and saying ‘No Guys Allowed’ for one special night at the Alamo Ritz.

“And when we say ‘People Who Identify As Women Only’, we mean it. Everyone working at this screening – venue staff, projectionist, and culinary team – will be female.

“So lasso your geeky girlfriends together and grab your tickets to this celebration of one of the most enduring and inspiring characters ever created.”
