Hollywood 2017: Alamo Drafthouse Severes Ties with Ain’t It Cool News

The Alamo Drafthouse is severing all ties with Harry Knowles in the wake sexual assault allegations against the Ain’t It Cool News founder.

Drafthouse CEO Tim League, already reeling from the Devin Faraci scandal, released a statement on Monday night which said the company had “severed all ties with Harry Knowles and he is no longer affiliated with the company in any capacity.”

League added that the company was “striving to better respond to allegations of sexual assault and harassment, and will take actions so those who work at the theater or attend as a guest are not made to feel unsafe.”

Knowles, who along with League co-founded the popular Fantastic Fest genre film event, was accused over the weekend of sexual assault by a former Drafthouse employee Jasmine Baker. “Harry Knowles groped me, opportunistically, on more than one occasion,” Baker said.  “I cannot just stay silent. I am not interested in remaining silent.”
