Jeepers Creepers 3 premiere canceled due to protesters

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Well, I can't say that I'm surprised by this news… But, unfortunately (?), yes, it looks like the World Premiere of JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 has been canceled on account of a group of people threatening to protest the event. 

The premiere was set to be held at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in Los Angeles September 13th, and stars from all 3 JEEPERS CREEPERS flicks were set to attend. The event had sold out within days of its announcement, but now it will not be happening. And maybe that is for the best.

The screening's organizer Kory Davis broke the news today and it turns out that TCL Chinese Theater made the choice to shut it all down after they were threatened by people who said they planned to not only protest outside the theatre the night of the premiere but every single day until then as well.

As you can imagine, the theater wanted no part in the matter and chose to just cancel the whole thing for better or worse. Again, I can totally see their reasoning, this is a messy subject and all I want is my JEEPERS CREEPERS 3. Too bad such a f*cking creep made the flick.
