Devin Faraci has resigned from Alamo Drafthouse after it was revealed that he was working for the company once more, despite sexual assault allegations that came to light in late 2016 which lead to his departure as the editor-in-chief of Birth.Movies.Death.
The news was revealed on Drafthouse founder Tim League’s Facebook page on the evening of September 13, one day after a post where he acknowledged that Faraci was once again working for Drafthouse. That news was met with a wave of criticism and hundreds of messages from angry members of the film community.
League’s post confirming Faraci’s resignation was a picture of a company memo, paired with the caption, “Below is a letter that was sent out to Alamo Drafthouse staff this evening regarding Devin Faraci.” The text of the memo is reprinted below.
I would like you each to know that I have spoken with Devin today, »
