Imagine this: you’ve waited 10 years for a new Star Wars film (32 years for a good one!) and when it finally comes out, it gets five-star reviews. So when you head off to the cinema you’re beside yourself with excitement, with all your equally excited mates, probably dressed head-to-toe as your favourite characters.
You settle into your seat, the opening credits roll, you’re chomping on popcorn with a big grin on your face because the film is so damn awesome. And then the projector breaks and the screen cuts out, before picking up towards the end of the movie effectively spoiling the entire thing.
This is the stuff of nightmares. Is it any surprise how this cinema reacted?
