There are some pretty pissed off moviegoers in New Jersey today after a screening of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ was cut short by a bomb threat.
The AMC Freehold Metroplex 14 in Freehold, New Jersey was flooded with police and bomb sniffing dogs as audience members poured out of the theatre around noon, NBC New York reports.

It was around 1 p.m. when officials, in the spirit of Star Wars’ Yoda wrote in a tweet:

This is the second time this week this particular theatre has been evacuated because of a bomb threat. Patch New Jersey reported that the theatre was also evacuated on Monday.
