Charges are pending against two men accused of causing a disturbance at a screening of the Joker movie in a Chicago theater. Police say the suspects were arrested last night after smoking and causing a ruckus at the AMC River East. No one was hurt. Chicago police officers were deployed at screenings of the controversial film throughout the weekend.
The Warner Brothers movie “Joker” is number one in the U.S. and Canada — earning 93-and-a-half-million-dollars in its debut weekend. “Abominable” came in second with 12-million-bucks. The big screen adaptation of “Downton Abbey” is third — selling eight-million-dollars worth of tickets in its third weekend of release.
