Dave Bautista denied entrance into movie theater

By Matthew Brooks

Dave Bautista, known for playing Drax the Destroyer from the Marvel comic movies, is having quite a time in New Mexico this week.

Bautista has been in New Mexico filming “Army of the Dead.” It’s a zombie movie.

On Wednesday, the former wrestler was at a New Mexico movie theater on Wednesday. That is, he was at the building where movies are shown but he didn’t make into the theater.

The management wouldn’t let him in, Comicbook.com reports.

He went to Twitter to air his grievance.

The Flix Brewhouse has a strict policy of not letting patrons into the theater once the previews have begun.

The Marvel actor was denied entrance because he was late getting to the theater doors.

The theater, to its credit, does not make exceptions for celebrities.

And this made him, in his words, confused.

Bautista was late getting to the theater doors because he was graciously signing autographs for the fans who were there.

Like Drax, Bautista has a gift for getting straight to the point.

And there is another twist to the story. There was only one person in the theater that Bautista couldn’t get in to: Bautista’s personal assistant.

This suggests that the former bodybuilder and wrestler didn’t have a bodyguard that night.

His assistant was permitted to leave the theater and re-enter it after the movie had begun because the assistant had entered the theater before the previews began. The assistant did just this while Bautista unsuccessfully argued with the manager.
