LOS ANGELES (AP) - Two theater chains have canceled showings of
the "Electric Daisy Carnival Experience" documentary after
violence erupted outside the premiere of the film in Hollywood
earlier this week.
The Los Angeles Times reports Friday that Regal and AMC theaters
cited "the incident in Los Angeles" in their decision not to show
the film about the Electric Daisy Carnival rave.
Police in riot gear were called in Wednesday night after some
fans became unruly, throwing bottles and damaging three police
cruisers. Three were arrested and police say more are expected
after identifications are made from video.
Insomniac Events, which promotes the Electric Daisy Carnival,
said Friday the film will still be shown in hundreds of theaters
nationwide and is disappointed that Regal and AMC canceled their
showings based on a few troublemakers.
