Devin Faraci has resigned from Alamo Drafthouse after it was revealed that he was working for the company once more, despite sexual assault allegations that came to light in late 2016 which lead to his departure as the editor-in-chief of Birth.Movies.Death.
The news was revealed on Drafthouse founder Tim League’s Facebook page on the evening of September 13, one day after a post where he acknowledged that Faraci was once again working for Drafthouse. That news was met with a wave of criticism and hundreds of messages from angry members of the film community.
League’s post confirming Faraci’s resignation was a picture of a company memo, paired with the caption, “Below is a letter that was sent out to Alamo Drafthouse staff this evening regarding Devin Faraci.” The text of the memo is reprinted below.
I would like you each to know that I have spoken with Devin today, and we agreed that it is the right decision for him to leave the company permanently. He offered his resignation, and I have accepted it.
Our company values the ability to reflect on our actions both individually and as a team. I have reflected a great deal, and I welcome the opportunity to speak with each of you, to listen and to provide the opportunity for further reflection.
As a result, you will all be receiving an invitation to a series of small group discussions beginning on Friday. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me personally with any concerns as we together chart our path forward.
