Star Wars Audience Lets Hate Flow Through Them After Projecter Breaks Mid-Viewing

You may or may not be aware that the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is kinda the big thing for this weekend. While the film has massive hype and is already setting cinematic records, one audience might have used their anger to tap into the dark side of the Force when their film projector abruptly stopped.

Late night viewers at the Hollywood’s Arclight Cinemas expressed massive frustration after the film broke in the middle of the show. Moviegoer Erik Melendez uploaded a video of the scene to Facebook, where he also gave his best impression of Darth Vader:

Now, since everyone on the Internet has been demanding that people respect other fans by not posting spoilers early, other fans were outraged when the film was started again at a later point when the projector came back on:

It is currently unknown what caused the projector to malfunction, or how shattered the dreams are of the excited moviegoers.
