There’s plenty to see in theaters at the moment, like Black Panther, which *finally* made its much-anticipated debut, and Fifty Shades Freed, which was released ahead of Valentine’s Day. While both are raking in some pretty big bucks, they’re obviously very different. So when a theater accidentally played Fifty Shades Freed and not Black Panther, it’s pretty safe to say that a lot of the audience — if not ALL of the audience — was pretty shocked.
Several audience members took to Twitter as soon as the theater started playing the third and final installment of the Fifty Shades franchise when everyone was expecting to see a badass superhero movie. And it makes sense that people at the Atlantic Station theater in Atlanta would be pretty freaking shocked if they had just settled down to watch some Chadwick Boseman and Lupita Nyong’o and got Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson instead. Not that the latter is a bad thing, per se…
…but it’s not what people showed up to see.
It’s pretty clear from Twitter videos that everyone in the theater was pretty annoyed at the situation, but there’s also some pretty audible laughter. After all, if the theater messed up that big, there’s not much you can do right away beside just laugh and wait for someone to fix it.
Fortunately for those in attendance, it seems as though there was one hero there to run and find someone to fix the situation.
So at the end of the day, all was well at this Atlanta theater — and the viewers got to see Black Panther as anticipated.
