Now of course, no one here is the least bit superstitious, right? I thought not. Even so, I’m not sure I want to be on a cruise ship running the movie Titanic … or The Poseidon Adventure either. Hell, I wouldn’t even like Gilligan’s Island reruns. Life is full of viscissitudes, so why push our luck.
‘Noah’ showing in England canceled by flood

The Vue Cinema in Exeter, England got a taste of the movie “Noah” thanks to a faulty ice machine. Moviegoers who attempted to flood the Vue Cinema in Exeter, England, to watch an afternoon showing of the movie “Noah” — based on the biblical story of Noah and the great Ark — got to witness a piece of the movie come to life.
The staff at the Vue found, upon arriving to work Friday morning, that the theater itself had flooded overnight due to a faulty ice machine. While the flood was not of the biblical scale, the water was enough to cancel the 12:15 local time screening.
Via Twitter, Vue Cinema updated the state of the theater to the NewsHour Tuesday, claiming that all systems were go, save for an elevator.
So all right, it’s not much of a story, but it’s a good excuse for a few flood-related music videos.
