A Florida movie theater made the ultimate mistake this past weekend during a scheduled showing of Disney's new film, Frozen: According to My Fox Tampa Bay, the theater accidentally began showing a sexually explicit film instead of the film that theater-goers had paid to see. Yikes.
Apparently, the theater had alerted patrons that the film would be delayed due to "technical difficulties," so in its place, they began playing a filler cartoon—something they clearly assumed was Steamboat Willie, but it was not. It really, really was not. As one woman who had taken her grandchildren to the showing explained:
"They put in the filler, it looked like 'Steamboat Willie,' the old Mickey Mouse cartoon, and then all of a sudden it goes into this other scene," Greene said. [...]
"It seemed like forever when you're trying to, you know, cover a little guy's eyes," she said. "I didn't have enough hands to cover his ears too and he got the sound down real good."
The theater reportedly apologized by giving everyone free movie tickets, which is actually a pretty good deal if you think about it—movies are expensive these days! Apparently, they're "in the process of ensuring that this doesn't occur in the future," even though it's not completely clear how this occurred in the first place.
