Anti-vaxxers arrested after storming AMC theater in Midtown Manhattan

MANHATTAN, NY POST – At least 10 people were taken into police custody after a group of anti-vaccine protestors stormed the AMC Empire 25 movie theater in Midtown on Monday night, police said.

Police said the group invaded the West 42nd street theater around 6:30 p.m. Those detained were awaiting charges on Monday night, cops said.

Video posted on social media from outside of the AMC shows NYPD officers escorting several men out of the theater into a van as a group of protesters can be heard loudly chanting.

“My body, my choice. The vaccine you won’t force,” the crowd repeated.

“I hope that you guys get inspired by that and stand up with us because this is going to the Supreme Court,” one protester tells a cop.
