Angry 'Twilight' Fans Rip Chicago Ridge Theater After Projector Fail
Die-hard "Twilight" fans began lining up at area theaters hours before midnight screenings of "Eclipse" on Tuesday, including a group of fans in southwest suburban Chicago Ridge--who were about to have their dreams shattered.
NBC Chicago reports that fans began lining up at the Chicago Ridge AMC movie theater around 9 p.m. to see the third installment of the "Twilight" series. When they entered the theater, they watched the previews, but when the movie started, there was no sound:
"We're watching the previews waiting for the movie and out of nowhere the sound just stopped," said teen fan Soraida Botello.
The movie goers started booing and yelling for management, who informed them they were having technical difficulties and would try to fix the problem. Meanwhile, the movie kept playing with no sound.
Finally, when management conceded defeat they asked everyone to leave.
The theater agreed to refund their money--but for the angry mob of teen vampire fans, it was not enough.
