We bought three tickets and rushed into Theatre 3 for the movie. We bought some snacks and drinks too.|
As the movie came to the most exciting part, all of us were at the end of our seats when all of the sudden, the whole theatre plunged into complete darkness and the screen went blank! We thought it was part of the movie to heighten the excitement but after two slow minutes, we felt that something was amiss.
Every one in the theatre murmured among themselves and sighs of frustrations and anger could be heard. Someone even let out a string of expletives!
As the ventilation in the theatre was getting worse, we decided to get up from our seats to go out of the theatre. However, the door was locked and we could not open it. We panicked. We banged on the door wondering what was happening.
"Could this blackout be a terrorist attack?" I wondered. Being timid and cowardly, the three of us were frightened and we shivered with fear.
