Showing of Noah Canceled After Movie Theater Floods

Apr 09, 2014

Here's a story you might want to share with people who love making puns about the new Noah film — such as a "flood of complaints," in reference to the controversy surrounding the movie.

The Vue Cinema in the English city Exeter confirmed to the newspaper Exeter Express & Echo that its first showing of Noah on opening day Ap ril 4 had to be canceled because "there was flooding" due to "a fault with an ice machine."

The staff did not need to find an ark for customers because the problem was reportedly discovered first thing in the morning, so the theater just didn't open until mid-afternoon.
