(Newser) – No giant boats were needed but there was plenty of mopping up to do after a flood forced a British theater to call off a screening of Noah. It's not clear how biblical the scale of the flood, but it forced the Vue Cinema to call off its afternoon showing of the blockbuster, the Exeter Express and Echo reports. The theater says an ice machine went haywire overnight and the flooding was discovered in the morning.
