2 theater chains cancel rave documentary showings

Two theater chains have canceled showings of the "Electric Daisy Carnival Experience" documentary after violence erupted outside the premiere of the film in Hollywood earlier this week.

The Los Angeles Times reports Friday that Regal and AMC theaters cited "the incident in Los Angeles" in their decision not to show the film about the Electric Daisy Carnival rave.

Police in riot gear were called in Wednesday night after some fans became unruly, throwing bottles and damaging three police cruisers. Three were arrested and police say more are expected after identifications are made from video.

Insomniac Events, which promotes the Electric Daisy Carnival, said Friday the film will still be shown in hundreds of theaters nationwide and is disappointed that Regal and AMC canceled their showings based on a few troublemakers.
