A Texas movie theater cancelled showings of several box office hits to accommodate massive demand for “Lone Survivor” Saturday.
“The following films have been cancelled due to the hit movie Lone Survivor,” a sign posted on the box office window of the Grand Theater in Conroe said. “We apologize for any inconvenience.”
Cancelled movies at the 14-screen multiplex include blockbusters “Wolf of Wall Street” and “Anchorman 2,” among multiple other films.
“Lone Survivor,” which is based off of the bestselling book by Marcus Luttrell, tells the incredible true story of four Navy SEALs ambushed by enemy forces while on a covert mission in Afghanistan.
The movie is projected to earn up to $38 million, based off box office scores from Friday, according to Variety. Estimates have reportedly doubled over the past 24 hours as a good word of mouth turns out huge crowds to theaters.
