The Red Pill screening in Calgary’s Plaza Theatre went off without a hitch, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t drama, cancellations and reconsiderations surrounding the event due to a loud minority of feminists and social justice warriors opposed to the screening.
In a weird twist, the manager of the theatre, Logan Cameron, collaborated on a silent protest with a local pub and the YWCA.
A post on the Plaza’s Facebook page invited those concerned to “nip violence and ignorance in the bud”, which perhaps could have been done if only those opposed to it had watched the film before having a public freak out about it.
As for the protest, at most ten people showed up to hide behind signs that made no sense and of course, wouldn’t talk to me about the film.
Holding a silent protest was convenient I suppose because it meant they wouldn’t have to share their ideas or the reasoning behind their protest.

Father’s Rights Alberta plan to screen The Red Pill in Red Deer, but details haven’t been confirmed. To follow updates on that event, keep an eye on their Facebook page at @FathersRightsAlberta.
