Some folks, and at least one Bay area television station, are disturbed by a mouse that appeared at a screening of Us at the AMC Sundial 20 in downtown St. Petersburg on Tuesday night.

Chris St. Julain Sr. told WFTS ABC Action News that he and others were waiting a movie to start when someone alerted the theater about “a mouse,” which allegedly sent folks running out of the theater.

“It was chaos,” Julain Sr. said, adding that someone eventually wrangled the rodent into a scarf before releasing it outside.


Refunds where requested, but only two free tickets for another movie were given, according to the report. WFTS said it called Sundial AMC management and left messages for AMC corporate that have yet to be returned. The station also said that there weren’t any major issues for AMC inside of inspection reports on the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation's website.

DBPR, for its part, told WFTS that no one called to complain about a mouse at the theater Tuesday.

We say let movie mouse live its life. Have you seen what they’re charging for movies these days?
