Guardians Movie Mix-Up at Virginia and New Jersey Regal Cinemas

Posted by monique On August - 4 - 2014 0 Comment

When you go to the theater to see the movie you paid for, you expect that particular film, right? Unfortunately, the patrons at a Regal Cinemas in Virginia were given an unwelcome surprise. People who paid to see Marvel’s latest blockbuster, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” were instead given a screening of Dreamworks’ 3D animated film, “Rise of the Guardians.”

The Hollywood Reporter got the full rundown from Dean Bromwell, who went to the movies with his 10-year-old daughter. Bromwell said they sat through the first 15 minutes of previews just to see the first five minutes of “Rise of the Guardians.” A theater employee came in to say they were working on the issue, but “Rise of the Guardians” played again. After this second mistake, the theater offered tickets to a later 3D IMAX screening. Around half of the patrons took the tickets, with the other half waiting for the issue to get resolved.

When “Rise of the Guardians” started playing for a third time, the crowd exploded in expletives. Of course, the patrons–including Bromwell–got ticket refunds. In Bromwell’s case, he also got “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie poster.

CinemaBlend states that Regal had been showing matinees geared towards kids including films like “Rise of the Guardians.” They think that perhaps someone must have just labeled “Rise of the Guardians” simply “Guardians,” leading to the mistake that not only happened in Virginai, but in New Jersey as well.
