Angry 'Twilight' Fans Rip Chicago Ridge Theater After Projector Fail (VIDEO)

Die-hard "Twilight" fans began lining up at area theaters hours before midnight screenings of "Eclipse" on Tuesday, including a group of fans in southwest suburban Chicago Ridge--who were about to have their dreams shattered.

NBC Chicago reports that fans began lining up at the Chicago Ridge AMC movie theater around 9 p.m. to see the third installment of the "Twilight" series. When they entered the theater, they watched the previews, but when the movie started, there was no sound:

"We're watching the previews waiting for the movie and out of nowhere the sound just stopped," said teen fan Soraida Botello.
The movie goers started booing and yelling for management, who informed them they were having technical difficulties and would try to fix the problem. Meanwhile, the movie kept playing with no sound.

Finally, when management conceded defeat they asked everyone to leave.

The theater agreed to refund their money--but for the angry mob of teen vampire fans, it was not enough.

What? Chicago too?! Anyway, we did finished watching the film, but what I noticed is the poor quality of film, some scenes are not even focused. I wonder why...

I don't live in Chicago but the theater I went to had problems too! Right after the tent scene the movie cut off and it took them 10 minutes to fix it. When I saw it agian today I realized some of it got cut out when it restarted :( but DEFINATELY the best movie so far

Well they fixed the problem because I saw it here at 4pm and it was fine. I had no idea this had even happened until I talked to some young ladies who were in line as I was leaving. Eclipse was awesome!!! Going to see it in IMAX this weekend!!!

WTF. The film at the Mall of Georgia, in Atlanta, melted on the screen at the point where Alice said she set up Bella's excuse for the battle. Fifteen minutes later they restarted and Charlie was giving Bella the sex talk. What is wrong with this and that picture.
