On Tuesday the CEO and founder of Alamo Drafthouse, Tim League, confirmed in a public statement that he had re-employed Devin Faraci, the former Editor-in-Chief of Alamo’s film site Birth.Movies.Death, who left the company after accusations of sexual assault.

Now League has announced in a statement posted to the theater’s social media channels that Faraci has stepped down from Alamo Drafthouse entirely.


Members of the film community, including Faraci’s initial accuser, voiced anger and disappointment over the decision to rehire the critic. One Fantastic Fest programmer, Todd Brown, even resigned as a result of Faraci’s involvement, writing in a public statement posted to Facebook about his departure: “I am embarrassed and ashamed to have been any part of this apparatus and I choose now to leave it.”
