Okay, so theaters make mistakes. Sometimes the popcorn is stale. Sometimes the soda is flat. Sometimes a theater shows a preview for Jumanji when you're about to watch Jumanji. These things are forgivable.
This Is NOT forgivable
but it is HIGHlarious!
At Showcase Cinemas in Revere, Massachusetts, parents THOUGHT they were taking their children to go see the kids movie Megamind.
They thought wrong.
Instead of showing a 3D family film, the theater accidentally started playing Saw 3D instead. Apparently parents got nervous when the previews seemed a bit "advanced" for children.
Once the theater realized their mistake, the children were told to cover their eyes during the horrific scenes of violence onscreen while they dealt with the problem.
Um….why didn't they immediately stop the movie? Or tell the kids to leave the theater? There are def a few better ways they could have dealt with that situation.
Here's what Dolph Rau, an upset father had to say about his traumatized child:
“He came and slept with us and we thought we had gotten past that years ago. He said that he had a few nightmares. Again, all that I would like to see come out of this is that its not going to happen again.”
To make up for their mistake, the movie theater gave the children one free ticket each. RIGHT! As if the parents would EVER take their children back to that theater!
How would U react if U took your kids to see a family movie and Saw 3D started playing?
