Quentin Tarantino's movie theater isn't taking any chances.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, the manager at New Beverly Cinema has filed a protective order against a "deranged man" who has made multiple threats of violence. The unnamed individual was reportedly banned from the theater after acting inappropriately toward female patrons; he has since been accused of stalking Tarantino and writing alarming messages online.
The legal documents include text messages as well as social media posts in which the man references infamous cult leader Charles Manson, and states "All Millennials should be mass murdered." He is also accused of telling moviegoers to stay clear of New Beverly Cinema on July 25, as he intends to "commit a violent act that would make him famous."
The LAPD's Threat Management Unit is now investigating the case, but the man in question has reportedly gone "underground" in an effort to dodge law enforcement.
The manager of New Beverly Cinema, which Tarantino purchased in 2007, claims the man has obtained the phone numbers of several employees. A number of staff members were granted protection under the restraining order; Tarantino was not listed as a "protected person."
Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set to hit theaters July 26. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Bitt, and Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate, the actress who was murdered by members of Charles Manson "family."
