[[wysiwyg_imageupload:4203:]]A comic book retailer out in Portland was showing episodes of The Walking Dead on the big screen to create some hooplah for the show as well as the comic book, and assuming the business.
Turns out AMC didn’t like that and sent TFAW a cease-and-desist letter requesting they stop the viewings immediately.
See below for more, but come to think of it, wouldn’t it be rather cool to watch The Walking Dead on IMAX?!
Due to forces outside of their control, Things From Another World (TFAW) and the Hollywood Theatre regretfully announce that they are canceling their free weekly screenings of The Walking Dead Season 3, effective immediately.
TFAW has sponsored free screenings of The Walking Dead with hosts cortandfatboy for two and a half seasons, and is greatly saddened to cancel this popular Portland event, after the Hollywood Theatre received a cease-and-desist letter.
“We’ve had a great run with The Walking Dead, and we are still huge fans of both the comics and the television show,” said TFAW Senior Director of Retail Operations Andrew McIntire. “It’s allowed us to reach out to the community in a unique way, and we’re grateful for all of the awesome people we’ve met through this. We’re sorry to disappoint anyone, but we have no choice in the matter.”
