It was a hot Saturday night at Downtown’s popular Court Street multiplex, where the second popcorn machine fire in six weeks shut down date night screenings and sent hundreds of moviegoers out into the rain.
Just as in the Aug. 4 blaze, no one was seriously injured, and the fire started in a popcorn maker — though not the same one as the first time, a manager of the Court Street Cinemas said.
Flooding from sprinklers caused some minor damage, but the movie house was open for business by Monday, with a line down the block filled with patrons hoping to see the ubiquitous Tyler Perry’s new film, “I Can Do Bad All By Myself.”
A spokesman for Regal Entertainment Group, the movie theater’s parent company, did not return calls in time for The Brooklyn Paper’s fiery online deadline.
