Theaters Banning Costumes At ‘Joker’ Screenings
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – There’s a growing controversy over the upcoming “Joker” movie.
Families of the victims of the 2012 Aurora shooting have expressed concern over the content of the movie, and they’ve asked Warner Bros. to commit to gun control causes.
Now, theater chains across the country are banning costumes at screenings of “Joker.”
AMC Theaters are among several chains banning costumes, specifically masks, makeup, or anything that conceals the face.
The U.S. Army also issued a vague warning of a “potential threat” surrounding the movie’s release. Officials later clarified the warning, saying they aren’t aware of any “specific, credible threat at a particular location.”
“Joker” opens in theaters nationwide on Friday.
