A nonprofit cinema in Florida’s Coral Gables has cancelled a personal screening of a documentary in regards to the dying of Trayvon Martin, as informed from his killer George Zimmerman’s perspective.

“Coral Gables Art Cinema was not aware of all of the details surrounding this private rental and has made a decision to cancel the rental,” the cinema tweeted on Wednesday.

The resolution comes the identical day that Zimmerman filed a $100 million lawsuit towards Martin’s household and state prosecutors over claims that Zimmerman was defamed and the sufferer of a conspiracy and “malicious prosecution.” In 2013, Zimmerman was acquitted of all fees stemming from the 2012 deadly capturing of the 17-year-old Martin — a choice that led to the creation of the Black Lives Matter motion. (Zimmerman has claimed that he shot Martin out of self protection.)

The documentary, titled “The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America,” was initially scheduled for a Thursday screening and information convention on the Coral Gables Art Cinema. But based on the cinema’s co-executive director, Brenda Moe, tickets weren’t bought for the screening as a result of it was a personal occasion, and the occasion organizers got a full refund.

“This was not a cancellation of a film. This was a cancellation of a private event,” Moe informed the Miami Herald. “This was a private rental and we were contacted by a private party wanting to rent the cinema. And then a press release was put out by the party and the moment we read that we said we were not aware of the details and canceled the rental.”

Joel Gilbert, the director of the documentary, stated he was “shocked and disappointed” in regards to the cancellation, based on an e mail he despatched to the cinema that was obtained by the Herald, and is now searching for an alternate location.
