Movie theater evacuated during 'Star Wars' showing

- The AMC Theater at the Freehold Raceway Mall in Freehold, New Jersey was evacuated Friday afternoon after a bomb threat was reportedly made against the theater.

SkyFoxHD was over the scene where a large crowd appeared to be waiting outside.

A movie goer told New Jersey 101.5 that he was watching “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” with his daughter when the screen went dark. A woman came in and told everyone to leave.

Various reports from the scene indicated the theater was also evacuated earlier this week following a written threat found by an employee.

The theater was reopened shortly after 1 p.m.
