Chicken Litte .. Great Family Movie...

No 'Chicken Little' - Kids see suicide

A Times Square movie theater laid an egg at a showing of "Chicken Little" last night.
Adults and kids expecting to watch Disney's G-rated animated flick at the AMC Empire 25 theater on 42nd St. were instead presented with a foreign film that opened with a young man committing suicide.

"It's pandemonium," Joshua Gallo, 30, told the Daily News as he rushed out of the theater with his 5-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter. "The kids are crying. The mothers are screaming for the managers to stop the film."

Terrified children didn't know what to do as they watched a young boy hang himself from a tree at the 8:45 p.m. screening.

After five minutes, "Andrea," a Spanish drama opening today, was turned off and "Chicken Little" was played.

Patrons got a coupon for a free movie.

Tomorrow I'm planning on getting a post up about my trip to ChiTown this weekend. I've got to get all the pics downloaded.. and the longer I wait.. the less upset I get about the whole damn thing...which is probably good.

My first thought on reading this was, "HA HA!", but then I felt bad. That sucks. I hope the kids aren't damaged for life!
