    SNAKES found at movie theater in Phoenix!

    Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss! It's true! A 10" long rattlesnake was found inside a hallway at AMC theaters in Phoenix, at Desert Ridge. Earlier that same day another rattlesnake was removed from outside the theater. It was unsure whether the snakes came from a construction sight, located next to the theaters, or if someone brought them to the theater. here's a copy of the article from azcentral.com (this is really crappy journalism, they say it's a hoax in the heading, but then they say the opposite thing in the story):'Snakes in a theater' turns out to be hoax Aug. 22, 2006 07:27 PMPolice say reports that rattlesnakes were let loose during a showing of Snakes on a Plane at a north Phoenix theater have taken moviegoers for a ride.There is some shred of truth to the story, Phoenix police Sgt. Joel Tranter said. A 10-inch-long rattlesnake was found Friday in a hallway at AMC Desert Ridge 18, near Tatum Boulevard and Loop 101. But it likely slithered inside on its own, Tranter said.A security guard swept the snake outside and held it in a Tupperware container until a member of the Arizona Herpetological Association could take it away. Snake handlers had been called earlier in the day to retrieve a rattler from outside the theater. advertisement An AMC spokeswoman told the news organization Reuters that the rumors were true, but Tranter has been refuting the story to news outlets from across the U.S. - Lindsey Collom

    Let's start the pool now:

    How long after the movie is released will an idiot(s) release a snake(s) in a theatre showing the movie?

    I say opening weekend.

    Re: SNAKES found at movie theater in Phoenix!

    Wrong Migo, the story IS true. Our local new stations have had interviews with one of the management of the the AMC theater these snakes were located at. One snake was just outside one of the theater doors. And a 10" rattler, found in a Hallway inside the AMC Theater building.

    What AMC Theater was trying to say is that the snakes were not found inside one of the theaters in the multiplex, but rather, one was found in a hallway inside the the AMC building, and one found just outside the building near a door.

    And I thought watching Arachniphobia in the dark was bad when a bug crawled across my hand... I think encountering a snake while seeing a movie about my biggest phobia would deafen all around me.

    LMAO - the theatres should drop plastic snakes from the ceiling during the snake attacks on the plane - that would be a jolt!

    Aladdin-

    My apologies. I had read on fark.com yesterday (prior to me posting) that it was false. What in fact was false was the "Oh my god, the sky is falling, and the theater is full of live snakes".


    A snake, in a hallway, in a warm place...well, that's just not news to me.
