Awkward - an American cinema put on Fifty Shades instead of the SpongeBob movie

The plots are kind of similar to be fair

A CINEMA IN Colorado has accidentally shown BDSM romp Fifty Shades of Grey to an audience of children.

The Coloradoan reports that the Loveland theater began playing the explicit (and very definitely adult-themed) flick instead of the film that was meant to be on – The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.


“It was the parents’ reaction to it that was so funny,” said filmgoer Joe Jaramillo who had taken his granddaughter to the 11:45 a.m. showing of what should have been SpongeBob’s second movie.

Some of them were moving pretty fast to get the kids out of the theater.

Thankfully only the start of the film was shown.

The offending cinema refused to comment on the incident to The Coloradoan, with Metropolitan Theatres President David Corwin saying ‘there’s no story here’ in an email response.
