A Theater Just Accidentally Played 'Fifty Shades Freed' Instead Of 'Black Panther'
3 months ago

There are two movies out right now that couldn't be more different in terms of style, tone, and cultural import. On one hand, we have Fifty Shades Freed, the latest installment in the Fifty Shades franchise, a romantic thriller based on the book of the same name, which started out as Twilight fan-fiction. And on the other hand we have Black Panther, literally the very first mainstream black superhero movie, which is not only providing black protagonists and role models galore, but is also reclaiming narratives that have been historically co-opted and showing us all an important vision of black excellence in a world that all too often devalues and erases black people and history. Black Panther is groundbreaking and people are turning out in force to see it. So what happens when people who bought tickets to Black Panther are instead accidentally treated to a showing of Fifty Shades Freed?

That's what happened at a theater in Atlanta on Thursday, and Twitter user @ChefWaites caught it on video.

People couldn't stop laughing:

Luckily, the snafu got sorted:

People shared their own stories about movie theater mix-ups:

This mishap was short-lived and the audience still got to be transported to Wakanda!
