Clayton is one of the leftwingnuts featured in the movie. Evidently, he doesn’t like the publicity.
Matthew Balan of Newsbusters was also in attendance and helped get Clayton removed, although the generous-minded theater management eventually let him back in:
I actually played a part in getting the leftist booted out of the theater. I went to the 10:20 pm showing at the invitation of Jason Jones of Movie to Movement, who is a good friend and a former boss. I sat towards the back of the theater, as many of the seats were filled by the time I entered. When the documentary started, Clayton somehow thought it was appropriate to add his own commentary track and laughed like a hyena at various points. I spoke up and told him to stop talking. But he didn’t stop.
After putting up with his antics for about 10 to 15 minutes, I got fed up, and quickly made my way out of the theater to track down the management of the theater complex. I discovered that a young Hispanic woman, who also had enough of Clayton’s outbursts, had already left to do the same thing, and the two of us waited for the managers to come up to where we were.When I reentered the darkened theater, instead of going back to where I had been sitting, I decided to sit in an empty seat near the front and next to the aisle. The managers came in not long after I did, and removed Clayton. As he was leaving, he walked right past where I was sitting and stopped in front of me, thus blocking my view. I told him to get lost, but he kept up his asinine behavior, pretended to have trouble hearing me, and moved closer to me. I repeatedly told him to get out of my face, and after a moment, he finally left.
After his departure, I moved to the back of the theater. But at some point, Clayton actually returned, having somehow convinced the managers to let him back in. This time, he was with a second person, and for the reminder of the movie, he was largely quiet. When the credits started rollings, most of the viewers, who had paid $12 to see the documentary and not Clayton’s clown act, left. But the DailyKos writer added insult to injury by conducting mock interviews of the patrons, before being booted completely from the premises by a security guard.

Last night at the premier of Hating Breitbart in Washington DC, Fox news contributor and Huffington Post writer Ryan Clayton was escorted from the theater.
This was after he got up and started screaming in the middle of the film.
Far left activist Ryan Clayton has appeared several times on FOX News.
Ryan Clayton actually appears in the Hating Breitbart documentary where he talks about the need for civil discourse in society… And then is seen viciously attacking Andrew Breitbart.
Maybe Fox will eliminate any future appearances by Clayton. Twitter users are giving him a verbal spanking.

This Twitter user was at the Regal theater.
Here’s the confirmation:
Clayton’s “pop quiz” didn’t work out so well.
By the way, this is Andrew’s last tweet:
After years of making his opinions known on any one of his many websites, Andrew Breitbart’s last Internet encounter was true to form. In a tweet posted at 11:25 p.m. Los Angeles time Wednesday night, Breitbart wrote, “I called you a putz cause I thought you were being intentionally disingenuous. If not I apologize.” The final missive was directed toward @CenLamar, the Twitter handle of blogger Lamar White Jr.
The two had begun exchanging messages earlier in the day, when White tweeted, “Andrew Breitbart’s speaking voice is like the love child of Owen Wilson and Dr. Evil.”
But their flurry of messages heated up in the hours leading to the final message as they discussed an article in The Atlantic that Breitbart felt unfairly portrayed video maker James O’Keefe. Breitbart’s BigJournalism.com had reported on Wednesday that O’Keefe had filed a defamation suit against CurrentTV as well as against Keith Olbermann for making references to O’Keefe as a “convicted felon,” according to the post.
Clayton conveniently forgot to include the fact that the Tweet wasn’t even addressed to him, nor did the apology have anything to do with the movie. Clayton’s wet dream is that Andrew was somehow apologizing for every bitch slap he gave the Left. Keep wetting, Clayton.
The film, which was already completed before Andrew passed, is a documentary of his activism against the thugs in leftwing media and organizations who want everyone censored and silenced except for themselves.

A summary from: http://www.youtube.com/user/hatingbreitbart:
“Hating Breitbart” tells the story of how one man with a website upended the traditional press and repeatedly found himself the target of a media feeding frenzy.
The filmmakers have been following Andrew Breitbart since the birth of the Tea Party movement in 2009, and they’ve got behind-the-scenes access to many of the media controversies in which Breitbart was a key player–from the ACORN takedown to Congressman Anthony Weiner’s crotch-shot Twitter scandal.
Andrew was instrumental in exposing the DemLeft’s corruption, which sent them into grand mal seizures.
Andrew’s legacy is that of a tough, uncompromising thorn in the side of the leftwing media conglomerate.
I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.
Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

Clayton’s hissy fit proves that Andrew is still here, and smiling.
