(Real) Snakes In A Cinema!
Snakes falling out of the screen...

23 August 2006  |  Written by

Another hissing chapter was added to the Snakes On A Plane phenomenon this week when a powerfully venomous Diamondback rattlesnake was found in a cinema in Phoenix, Arizona. A further snake was later found in the car park. Both reptiles were released back into the desert and no-one was hurt.
 
An early report that the Cinema's manager was heard bellowing: “I've had it with these muthaf*king snakes in this muthaf*king theatre!” turned out to be a massive lie.
