'Dark Knight' showing halted at NJ theater
EDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) - July 24, 2012 (WPVI) -- An incident involving an emergency exit led officials to cancel the screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" at a New Jersey movie theater.
Police received a call from someone at the Edgewater Multiplex on Monday night.
Police Sgt. Steven Titus tells The Star-Ledger of Newark (http://bit.ly/PO2n13 ) the caller said a male stood up about 90 minutes into the movie, opened an emergency exit, spoke to someone outside and returned to his seat.
Police stopped the movie and asked the person who opened the door to come forward. When no one did, the movie was canceled and about 100 customers received refunds.
Titus says the precaution was taken in the wake of the deadly mass shooting in Colorado.
