Expelled From Creationist Movie

Being a prominent blogger just might make one more famous that being the author of several books. P.Z. Myers reports that he attempted to view a creationist movie but was turned away:

I went to attend a screening of the creationist propaganda movie, Expelled, a few minutes ago. Well, I tried … but I was Expelled! It was kind of weird — I was standing in line, hadn’t even gotten to the point where I had to sign in and show ID, and a policeman pulled me out of line and told me I could not go in. I asked why, of course, and he said that a producer of the film had specifically instructed him that I was not to be allowed to attend. The officer also told me that if I tried to go in, I would be arrested. I assured him that I wasn’t going to cause any trouble.

I went back to my family and talked with them for a while, and then the officer came back with a theater manager, and I was told that not only wasn’t I allowed in, but I had to leave the premises immediately. Like right that instant.

The story is amusing enough, but then Myers really has an unexpected ending for his story. They apparently did not recognize his guest who was allowed to go right on in to see the movie–Richard Dawkins!
