Evan Roberts, president of Blue Bridge Theatre Society has canceled the rental agreement with director Shiraz Higgins after he wanted to charge white men double to attend.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the screening of “Building the Room” at the Roxy Theater in Victoria was canceled because of the director's “prejudicial pricing structure”.
Last week, Higgins caused controversy by proposing that white males pay $20 to attend his film about stand-up comics. After a backlash, Higgins opted to lower the price for “White Cis-Straight Able-Bodied Males” to $15 while others would still pay $10.
Roberts said his society “does not believe in, nor does it practice, any form of a prejudicial pricing structure as proposed by Mr. Higgins” and added that “...BBTS feels it cannot support what it sees as irresponsible actions on the part of its organizer.”
The film screening has now been moved to October 6 at the Victoria Event Center. Its producers are asking people to simply “pay what they can.”
