Bizarre twist of irony sees Noah screening cancelled by actual cinema flood

Russell Crowe as NoahOf all the reasons why a screening of Russell Crowe epic Noah might have to be cancelled, this one must surely rank as the most ironic.

Those cinemagoers aiming to catch the first showing of the movie, which opened last Friday, at the Vue in Exeter, found themselves out of luck after being told that the cinema had had to close – due to a flood on the premises.

Local paper the Express and Echo reported that a faulty ice machine was to blame for the incident, which left the cinema unable to re-open until 2pm – almost two hours after the first showing had been due to begin.

A spokesperson for the cinema told the paper they had ‘worked with engineers to get the issue resolved as quickly as possible’.

However the coincidence was not lost on some, with one person commenting on Twitter: ‘#IronyThe day ‘Noah’ was released, Exeter Vue was flooded overnight because of a burst pipe!’
