Canada’s LGBT news outlet Daily Xtra attended the premiere of Stonewall at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 18 and just posted their report on the event, which was attended by director Roland Emmerich and some of the film’s stars.
Also attending the red carpet event were a number of demonstrators, who made their problems with the film known over a bullhorn. One altercation with an attendee was recorded by the Xtra crew, along with interviews with both the protest organizers and the filmmakers (including Emmerich) and actors.
The film opened in limited release this past weekend and did what The Hollywood Reporter called “abysmal” numbers, grossing $112,414 from 127 theaters for a location average of $871.
