Apologies, gentlemen, but we're embracing our girl power and saying "No Guys Allowed" for one special night at the Alamo Ritz.
While most women rejoiced after learning the news, some were not happy the theater was donating to Planned Parenthood.
Until then, fans will at least have the opportunity to enjoy the legacy of Carter's version of the character, since Jenkins says she's included subtle Easter eggs in the film as a way to pay respect to the Wonder Woman series.
"We might actually have to steal that clown idea", the Alamo Drafthouse account responded. Of course you're upset at not being invited to see Wonder Woman, that's totally discrimination.
The feedback wasn't all critical; people from far-flung locations also posted their appreciation for the events and told Alamo staffers to keep up the good fight.
"And when we say "women (and people who identify as women) only", we mean it". Everyone working at this screening-venue staff, projectionist, and culinary team-will be female. "That providing an experience where women truly reign supreme has incurred the wrath of trolls only serves to deepen our belief that we're doing something right".
The offer of special screenings began recently in Austin, Texas, where Alamo has held specialty screenings in the past for military veterans and others.
The movie, starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot, is based on a comic book character introduced in 1941, fighting villains, rescuing victims and unearthing evil plots.
Via Facebook, one woman criticized the screenings as a "scheme to make money wrapped up in a feminism debate" and noted "plenty of women, feminists, wouldn't be OK with this".
Paolo Ballesteros is back at it with his makeup transformations, this time turning himself into an iconic superhero - Wonder Woman.
