Universal Pictures Will Support Extra Security For Theaters Playing ‘Straight Outta Compton’
Universal Pictures released a statement saying although it is not required they do support the extra security coming off two back to back movie theater shootings in Louisiana and Tennessee. The statement read “The studio has not solicited enhanced security for theaters who will begin showing it this weekend, but has partnered with those exhibitors who have requested support for their locations.”
‘Straight Outta Compton’ is just one of many films with gang related themes that has called for added security measures in theaters. The opening weekend of ‘Boyz n the Hood’ as well as ‘Notorious’ also beefed up security.
