FLORIDA (CNN/WFLA) – A Florida movie theater has canceled the showing of a documentary about the Trayvon Martin shooting.

Coral Gables Art Cinema posted on Twitter Wednesday — saying it did not know the details surrounding the screening of “The Trayvon hoax: unmasking the witness fraud that divided America.”

It says the event was private but now won’t take place.

The documentary was to be screened Thursday in tandem with a news conference with George Zimmerman who has filed a lawsuit against the martin family.

Zimmerman’s attorney canceled the news conference late Wednesday with plans to reschedule.

Zimmerman was acquitted in the fatal 2012 shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

But according to the lawsuit, he believes there was a conspiracy to frame him and is planning to sue Martin’s family, their attorneys and prosecutors for damages faced in excess of $100 million.
