It also happens to be the 20th anniversary of the Drafthouse itself– the first one opened May 25, 1997.

Since then, the Drafthouse has become one of the most influential brands in American cinema. They’ve opened dozens of locations, thrown thousands of events, started Fantastic Fest and catered to movie nerds of all stripes while retaining a pro-active, progressive social stances.

More: It’s Alamo Drafthouse’s 20th birthday. Here are 20 times the theater told us to shut up.

So it seems fitting that, given their dexterity in changing with the times, their social media person delivered a burn so sick in re: the Wonder Woman screening that you could hear jaws drop all over the internet.
