EXETER, England, April 8 (UPI) -- It’s unclear if moviegoers entered the first screening of Noah at the Vue cinema in Exeter, England, two-by-two, but what is certain is that the theater had to cancel the movie because of flooding.
On Friday, when the blockbuster opened nationwide in England, Vue staff arrived and discovered there was “excess water” in the theater. As a result, the first showing of Noah at 12.15 p.m. was cancelled.

The Russell Crowe film is a variation of the Bible story about Noah’s Ark.
“We can confirm that there was flooding at Vue Exeter on Friday 4th April due to a fault with an ice machine,” a spokesman for Vue cinema told the Exeter Express & Echo. "We are open for business as usual and are working with engineers to get this issue resolved as quickly as possible.”
