More Violence Erupts at TDKR Showing

Moviegoers panicked and fled a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" when a fight broke out inside a theater in Pennsylvania on Sunday.

Moviegoers are still skittish after the terrifying events that occurred in Aurora, Colorado last week. Huffington Post is reporting that another event took place at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises. Thankfully this time it was just a fight between two people, but a jittery audience panicked which escalated the incident.

Just two days after a gunman opened fire and killed 12 people at a "Dark Knight" premiere in Colorado, ticket holders were nearly trampled by a fearful audience at a Loews theater near Pittsburgh, according to the Post-Gazette.

The stampede began when two people started yelling inside.

"There were two people who got into an argument, and one person yelled something that induced people to get into a panic," Witness Colin Marks, 25, told the paper.

The entire audience evacuated so quickly that witnesses said they had to dodge people who fell to the ground. Two people suffered minor injuries in the melee.

"It was scary. People were screaming. Everyone was running, kind of pushing each other. People were dropping things. Everyone was getting down. It was definitely chaotic. Everyone's heart was racing," one witness told WPXI.

*Sigh* This is getting out of hand. I'm just glad no one got seriously injured, or worse. Thank God. But really; people have to chill out. Just chill and enjoy the movie. No arguements, no yelling, no nothing.

Stay EPIC, my friends!

Like I've said, they just have to shut up, sit down, and enjoy The Dark Knight Rises with either themselves/family members/friends. That's all.
ShoxSpidey95 - 7/23/2012, 8:57 PM
wow, just sit down and shut up, cry when batman "dies," and say OOHHH! when john blake is revealed as "robin," and cheer when the movie ends. No more, no less.
musashi - 7/23/2012, 9:06 PM
@marvelpsycho79 Agreed. Going to the movies is a gamble. I can't understand why people would pay expensive movie prices to sit there and munch like cows and talk like they're in a frikken cafe!!

Soooo annoying!

In other news, yet another comments section is filled with posts that have nothing to do with the article.
CPBuff22 - 7/23/2012, 9:59 PM
So it makes me wonder if the majority of us Americans don't understand how dangerous the world we are living in is. I mean it can't really be a coincidence that this kind of violence has erupted twice at a movie that is as dark as TDKR and focuses on terror, can it?

I have been asked my opinion on this violence many times in the past few days and I honestly have more questions than I do answers. There are so many theories as to why this could be happening but its like throwing crap at the wall to seeing if it sticks at this point. Really nothing solid has come from either incident.

i have a feeling this is not the end of the fighting surrounding this movie. now local police officers are going to have to sit in on TDKR showings like air-marshalls. someone must've pointed out a problem with the movie and needed to be corrected

Your making [frick]en jokes about this. Man shut the [frick] up. You piece of [frick]en dog shit. This is not time jokes.

@heavykilluminati what the hell? Every society in the past/present/future has there wacko's. History alone is rife with massacre's, ethnic cleansings, genocide, and war.

Joseph Stalin caused tens of millions of deaths. Hitler same thing. The Armenian massacre during the Ottoman Empire, the Nanking massacre by the Japanese against the Chinese. And lets not forget Mao Zedong who caused tens of millions of deaths also thru the great leap forward and cultural revolution. Why are so many like you quick to blame the "big bad Americans" for every ill in the world? Bad things caused by bad people have happened to humanity before America, and they will keep happening long after America. Lets treat this for what it is, a lone person who purposely set out to murder en mass. This one person is exactly person. How dare you make a blanket statement that all Americans are to blame, show some empathy for your fellow man and recognize that nobody can stop one person willing to go this far with no obvious signs before hand.

And the bad press just keeps coming. How this movie is doing so well is beyond me.

I saw the movie, by myself today. No wife, no friends, and I must say I loved it. It keeps improving with multiple viewings. There was something great about seeing it without worrying about others opinions. I loved when Bane broke the bat! This movie played out like a graphic novel sprung to life on the screen. It is definitely the most comic book feeling of the three. It's not perfect, but it's a damn good film.
