MOOSIC, Pa. (AP) - Water problems are being cited in the closure of two theater complexes in a northeastern Pennsylvania county.

Fire officials in Lackawanna County say a broken sprinkler flooded the foyer and ticket lobby of the Cinemark Theater complex in Moosic with a “substantial” amount of water Monday.

Firefighters told WNEP-TV that the pipe probably broke because of extremely low temperatures.

Some moviegoers who were inside at the time said they thought it was part of the movies they were watching.

A water problem was also blamed for closure of the Regal Theatre complex in Dickson City.



There was no immediate word on when the theater complexes will reopen.
