A "chick flick" movie proved so boring for a Christchurch man he went to sleep in a Hoyts cinema last night - and his wife was so annoyed she left him there.
But when he hadn't arrived home by 3am, she panicked, returned to the cinema in Northlands Mall, and called him on his cellphone.
When the man woke up and tried to find an exit, he triggered a motion alarm in the cinema and police were needed to unite the highly embarrassed couple.
Northlands Mall manager Brian Bell told NZPA this morning he was short on detail and seeking an explanation. It was a Hoyts operational matter, he said.
Hoyts management didn't return calls.
And the movie? - PS I Love You.
