Mainstream media has movie goers across the country thinking” Birth of a Nation “did poorly at the box office when in fact there were movie theaters deliberately telling customers that the movie was sold out when it wasn’t.
There is blatant evidence in one such theater in Regal Cinema Brandywine in Willmington, Delaware that proves there were hardly any patrons in the theater; it was virtually empty.
This appears to be done willfully and intentionally so that other movie tickets for white movie producers could be sold at the expense of The Nat Turner Story “Birth of a Nation”
A gentleman named Devon Starshooterz walls posted a live video on Facebook where he attended the Regal Cinema Brandywine in Willmington, Delaware to see the movie Birth of a Nation and was told the show was sold out, however when he went in to peek in the theater to see for himself, there were only three people in the theater.
Devon then went out and asked an employee why were customers being told the movie was sold out when in fact the theater is empty? The employee stuttered before saying, ” I don’t know”. She then said on her screen it says sold out so she tells that to customers.
He then asked her,” do you see how this could present a problem? I was directed to purchase another movie ticket which I purchased a ticket for “The Accountant” but instead went in to see “Birth of a Nation” and the theater was empty”.
The young girl then said, sorry” I can have a manager come down for you, which he replied, “Yes, please can you.” I just want everyone to know that they are putting sold out on the screen when the film is not sold out. He then said, “Tell him it’s an angry black guy in the lobby that wants to know why this happening.”
As he is waiting for the manager, you hear him say, ” nobody seems to know what’s happening, nobody seems to know what’s going on and I’m not for this BS! He then said, I am waiting for the manager to come down, I may not be able to point the camera at him but I want you all to hear the conversation live. He then asks for everyone to share the video so people can know what is happening with black films that come to the theaters unless it’s Madea.
He then said, They will play a film like that and let you do 30 million but when there is a film that tells about the history of black people, this is the stuff that is happening.”
The gentleman then says, the next thing I expect to happen is for some state troopers to come walking in this movie theater. He then says, ” Birth of a Nation is being blackballed in Regal Cinema Brandywine in Willmington, Delaware.
He then encourages people to please go out and see Birth of a Nation, please get tickets for it, please go see it.
As the manager comes out, he says, I came to see Birth of a Nation and was told it was sold out. We went to the theater and only three people are in the theater, the manager then tells a blatant lie saying,” It was sold out and they added another show”. and the gentleman said, how is that, That is the same show that is listed.
