A man who was asked to leave a Salina movie theatre earlier this week was asked to leave not because he had a concealed gun, but rather because he threatened an employee with it. That’s according to a statement from the theatre.
The incident happened Tuesday morning at the Starplex Cinemas in the Central Mall.
According to a statement from the theatre manager, “the police asked the customer to leave, not theatre staff”. She says “police weren’t called because the man had a concealed gun, but because the man spoke to our employee with a threatening tone while showing his gun”. She adds “we want all of our employees and customers to be in a safe environment at all times”.
The man was given tickets to come back at a later time.
No charges are being sought in the case.
