Man Slashes Napa Theater Movie Screen!


On Friday, February 12, 2016, at the Napa Cinemark Theater, one of the movie screens was destroyed by a man Gregory Nicholson age 36. Nicholson at the time was intoxicated.

We interviewed two students who were at the showing of Deadpool when the incident happened.

“About halfway through the movie some man jumped up on the stage and smashed a beer bottle, he then started slashing at the movie screen. Everyone started to evacuate the movie theater, while everyone was running the man ran out a door behind the movie screen,” said Hayden Ross a Harvest Middle School 7th grader.

Many people left their personal belongings in the movie theater (shoes, wallets, articles of clothing and all of their food). In the middle of all the craziness one of the theater employees called the police.

About five minutes after Nicholson fled the theater the police caught up with him in the parking lot of the apartments that are near the theater.
