‘Noah’ screening cancelled after cinema floods

The first screening of ‘Noah’, starring Russell Crowe and directed by Darren Aronofsky, at Vue cinema in Exeter had to be cancelled last Friday because – get this – the venue flooded!

The screening was scheduled to begin at 12:15pm, however the multiplex remained closed until after 2pm because staff who had arrived earlier on had found the building a bit wetter than usual.

Rather than a divine rainstorm, the flood was said to be caused by a burst pipe.

The irony was not lost on would-be viewers.


A spokesperson for the Exeter Vue later blamed the ironic incident on a malfunctioning ice machine, saying: “We can confirm that there was flooding at Vue Exeter on Friday 4th April due to a fault with an ice machine.

“We are open for business as usual and are working with engineers to get this issue resolved as quickly as possible.”
