As you likely already know, the highly anticipated movie Straight Outta Compton, a critically acclaimed biopic about the gangsta rap group N.W.A., begins rolling out on Thursday night. Reports surfaced earlier today that Universal Studios would help pay for extra security in some theaters, however, the company recently issued a statement saying that’s not completely true.
According to NBC News, Universal said, “the studio has not solicited enhanced security for theaters who will begin showing it this weekend but has partnered with those exhibitors who have requested support for their locations.”
Movie theater security has become an increasingly prominent issue lately, especially after last month’s shooting in Louisiana, when a man randomly killed two women during a screening of Trainwreck.
