Oh, the Irony! Movie Theater's Showing of Noah is Cancelled due to Flooding

Where's the Ark when you need it? The film Noah just got a tad too real for moviegoers at the Vue Cinema in Exeter, England.

According to Exeter's Express & Echo, the theater was supposed to show the latest Hollywood blockbuster Noah, starring Russel Crowe as the biblical patriarch, when staff arriving in the morning discovered that the building flooded because of a broken ice machine. They had to cancel the first screening of the movie.

It was unclear whether this was divine intervention or a simple mechanical failure -Heaven works in mysterious ways - but the irony wasn't lost on moviegoers, one of whom tweeted "#Irony The day Noah was released, Exeter Vue was flooded overnight because of a burst pipe!"

During Hurricane Hazel which passed over Syracuse NY in 1954, it blew down the marquee of the Elmwood movie theater. Playing that day was Gone With The Wind.
