A group of Tibetans and supporters of Tibet is planning a silent protest outside a Manhattan movie theater Thursday night to criticize a film studio’s decision to have actress Tilda Swinton play a character in the movie “Doctor Strange,” which opens in the U.S. this week.
Urgyen Badheytsang, campaign director of Students for a Free Tibet, told NBC News that between 10 and 12 protesters were expected to gather outside the AMC Village 7 theatre in Manhattan’s East Village Thursday evening, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
