The Alamo Drafthouse announced women-only events at each of their metro area locations. Both shows are already sold out. Part of the proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood.

  1. Of course it’s sexist, but so is Ladies Night at the bar. No one says you have to patronize these places. Too much whining going on, not enough thinking. Oh, and ladies, don’t get fussy when it comes to “GUYS night out”. You all need to get over yourselves too.

  2. So it IS a fundraiser. Good, problem solved. That’s all the majority of us wanted to know.
