0308-fierce-movie-poster-bowlerbear-designThe Alabama theater that banned the new “Beauty and the Beast” for having a gay character damn near projected a drag queen documentary due to a pretty funny mix-up.

Carol Laney owns the Henagar, AL drive-in and tells us she approved “Fierce” as an upcoming feature thinking it was a Game of Thrones-ish kinda flick. She says the poster was misleading — a woman surrounded by 3 dragons.

Sure, there’s plenty of slaying in the docu-film about drag queens, just not the kind Laney had in mind for moviegoers. She says people started calling her out for banning “Beauty and the Beast” … but leaving the doc on her schedule of upcoming films.

No shocker — she’s now pulled “Fierce” too, saying it’s not in “her comfort zone.”

Kind of a drag.
