'Star Wars' fans left fuming as sound problems hit screening of 'Last Jedi'

After months of waiting and hours of queuing, Star Wars fans at one AMC theater in Burbank, CA. were left fuming after technical problems at a screening on Thursday night left them watching pictures with no sound. 

There was near pandemonium at AMC Burbank 16, as fans who had settled in to be one of the first people to see Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi suddenly had their enjoyment cut short due to sound problems. With seemingly no improvement, and the theater not choosing or unable to restart the movie, fans began streaming out to the lobby to complain to management according to several Twitter users who live-tweeted the ruckus.  

A video captured by YouTube user Lynly Ehrlich captured some of the mayhem, with customers screaming expletives at AMC staff to re-start the movie. 

Twitter user Isaias Rodriguez tweeted that "AMC offered a couple of options," to placate customers.  "[One] was they can move you to another screening at the same theater but it would not be in IMAX. [Second] was to [you] get to attend a screening of the movie at another AMC theatre tomorrow at times that they have available." 

Those options didn't seem to go down too well and things got so heated Burbank police were called to keep the peace.
