No one was injured though 800 were evacuated at the theater complex
Is this movie cursed?
Exactly one week after the mass shooting at a theater in Aurora, Colorado, a small fire at a midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" in a city near Guadalajara, Mexico forced more than 800 moviegoers to evacuate the theater complex early Friday.
No one was injured after a trash receptacle caught fire in the lobby of a Cinepolis theater in Zapopan.
A newspaper in Mexico City said fire inspectors were investigating the cause and did not immediately exclude arson. The fire was quickly contained and everyone was evacuated in an orderly manner.
Warner Bros. canceled both the premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Mexico City and press events earlier this week, which actors Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and Joseph Gordon Levitt were slated to attend.
Meanwhile, the composer who wrote the music for the film has penned a song dedicated to the Aurora shooting victims.
Hans Zimmer posted the track "Aurora" on his Facebook page Friday, saying he recorded the song in London after the shooting. All proceeds are being donated to a fund for victims of the massacre.
