In wake of the controversial all-female “Wonder Woman” screening at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, an all-male screening of the new documentary “Rush: The Making of Hemispheres and the Triumph of La Villa Strangiato” in Toronto was met with zero protests at the theater and did not cause one iota of backlash online.
Hundreds of well-mannered 30- to 50-year old males packed the Fox Theatre to enjoy the 6-hour documentary highlighting the sixth studio album by the legendary Canadian power trio. When asked about the strict “No Females Allowed” screening, event organizer John “By-Tor” Torklason responded “What are you talking about? Who said that, eh?”
Attendee and longtime Rush fan Randy Travelstone was a bit more forthcoming when asked about the ban on women. “Um, I didn’t realize there was an official ‘men-only’ thing going on. I’ve been going to Rush shows and events for 25 years and I’ve only seen six women total, mostly moms I think, so I really didn’t notice.”
When told about the exclusion of women at the Rush event, a female who was walking by said, “Aw, that’s cute. Good for them.”
