Utah theater switches movies
SOUTH JORDAN, UT — The Megaplex Theatre at the District gave moviegoers more than they bargained for when it played the R-rated movie “Sex Drive” instead of the G-rated “High School Musical 3.”
The theater switched one of the showings of “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” to a larger auditorium to accommodate more people, but forgot to switch the movie.
“Sex Drive” includes nudity in its opening minutes and parents could not carry their children out of the hall fast enough.

The District Theatre was the 10th busiest in the US for HSM3 ticket sales.
