Movie Theater Accidentally Shows Insidious 3 Instead of Inside Out

In what was apparently an egregious mistake in the projection booth, a recent showing of Pixar’s Inside Out at an Ohio theater ended up showing a different film that was well outside the safe, colorful boundaries of kid-friendly fare: Insidious: Chapter 3. It was an involuntary film swap that quite clearly wasn’t well-received by the parents of young children.

Local Ohio paper, Journal-News, caught wind of the incident after an infuriated mother named Jazmyn Moore took to the paper’s Facebook page to vent her frustration about the potentially long-lasting damage done to her horror film-exposed children. According to the woman's post:

I got our money back but the damage is already done … my children are terrified and keep asking questions.


The theater manager quickly provided reparation for the monumental mistake with not only an apology, but refunds and an upgrade to see Inside Out in the costlier 3D format. The measure seems to have mollified the majority of the moviegoers, with the exception of Moore, who continued to cite the impact of her children’s brief exposure to the PG-13-rated Insidious prequel.

1. Well, how long did they sit through it before getting

Their kids out? Movie titles come up pretty quickly. I guess it's possible there was something horrible at the beginning.
