Theater Fear: Emergency Exit Doors Remain Locked During Fire Alarm Scare

Theater Fear: Emergency Exit Doors Remain Locked During Fire Alarm Scare

Fire alarms are shriekingly scary at the best of times, but what about when one such alarm sounds off in a movie theater, causing moviegoers to head to emergency exit doors that are inexplicably locked? That is exactly what happened to Maggie Fagan and others late Saturday night at the AMC Loews Theater located at the Monmouth Mall in Eatontown NJ.

Fagan was with a girlfriend seeing the movie “Divergent” when the alarm went off, reported the Asbury Park Press.

According to USA Today, police said on Sunday that the alarm was a “false activation,” but many of the people in the theater had no idea it was innocuous at the time.
