Regal, AMC cancel ‘Daisy’ screenings

Move comes after melee at Chinese Theater premiere

The Regal and AMC chains have canceled screenings of the “Electric Daisy Carnival Experience” doc in the wake of Wednesday’s disturbance at the feature’s Hollywood premiere.

Chains both cited “the incident in Los Angeles” in their decision to yank the pic from their screens.

Feature, directed by musicvid helmer Kevin Kerslake and mounted by Insomniac Events, producer of the live EDC mega-raves, had originally been scheduled for an Aug. 4 digital presentation on 522 U.S. screens.

Riot-equipped police were called in Wednesday after fans swarmed the street outside the preem at the Chinese Theater (Daily Variety, July 29). Three were arrested for felony vandalism after a bottle-throwing melee that saw three squad cars overturned.

The mini-riot and subsequent screening cancellations are new black eyes for EDC, which took heat after a teen girl’s drug-related death at the L.A. Coliseum in 2010 and arrests and overdoses at the 2011 event in Las Vegas.
