- Really? April 8
A movie theater in Exeter, England was forced to cancel a screening of Noah, the Russell Crowe movie about an earth-destroying flood, after gushing waters from a broken ice machine soaked the cinema.
According to a newspaper from the western British city, the after effects from the faulty ice machine left the theater closed Friday for several hours. Since the scale of the flooding wasn't as biblical as it is in the movie, a theater spokesperson said the issue was resolved as "quickly as possible." No animals or humans were injured during the chaotic event — and no wooden arks were seen sailing away from the scene.- - Jordan Valinsky
