Alamo Drafthouse holding a clown-only screening of IT

Yes, you read that right. Looks like the Alamo Drafthouses in Austin, Texas, and NYC will be holding a screening of STEPHEN KING'S IT exclusively for clowns.

That should go well.

The clowns-only screenings will be on September 9th (the day after the film premieres) and, funny enough, the idea came to the Drafthouse crew after some assh*le made fun of their women-only screening of WONDER WOMAN, complaining:

Will there be a male only screening for Thor: Ragnarok or a special screening for It that’s only for those who identify as clowns?

To which the crew responded:

We might actually have to steal that clown idea.

You can read the rundown on the clowns-only screening below and then make sure to let us know what you think of this nightmare screening on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

IT Clowns-Only Screening rundown:

For this special screening of It, all attendees should arrive dressed as a clown in order to attend. The theater will also feature a “Barrel O’ Fun,” a pre-party beginning at 5:30 p.m. with face paint stations, photo booths, and raffles.

The screenings will then begin at 7:00 p.m.

IT synopsis:

A group of young kids faces their biggest fears when they seek answers to the disappearance of children in their hometown of Derry, Maine. They square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

IT is directed by Andrés Muschietti from a script by Chase Palmer & Cary Joji Fukunaga and Gray Dauberman, based on the novel by Stephen King.

The film stars Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Jack Dylan Grazer, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Chosen Jacobs, Nicholas Hamilton, Owen Teague, Javier Botet, Steven Williams, and Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

IT hits theaters (including IMAX) nationwide September 8th.
