Went to the Arclight this weekend to see “The Bourne Ultimatum” with a friend who’d never been there. She was impressed by the assigned seating and the introduction that was given by an usher who promised, “the experience of a lifetime.”
She only had to wait an hour or so to get that experience. At the end of one particularly brutal fight scene (the one involving Desh, for those who’ve seen the film), the screen went black, lights started flashing, and the alarm sounded.
We all evacuated just long enough to walk around the building and back in through another door. Then we were told it was a false alarm. Only the best at this “once in a lifetime” theater.
