Ryan Reynolds Gives Theater $5K in Fight Over Booze and Sex

A Utah movie theater is in trouble for showing Deadpool while serving booze, and actor Ryan Reynolds—or a person using his name—has added $5,000 to the theater’s legal defense fund, the Salt Lake City Tribune reports. Salt Lake City’s Brewvies Cinema Pub was cited last week for serving alcohol while showing the film, which contains simulated sex and nudity.

That mix of booze and on-screen sex violatesUtah code, reports KUTV, and means the theater could lose its liquor license for 10 days and pay a $25,000 fine. So the theater has filed a federal lawsuit against Utah, saying its First Amendment right to free speech was violated. Fans (and, apparently, Deadpool’s star) have so far contributed about $12,000 to the theater’s GoFundMe campaign.
