2 shot in Atlanta movie theatre in stable condition; 'The Interview' not showing there

December 23, 2014 - 9:02 PM

ATLANTA - Atlanta police are investigating a shooting inside a movie theatre in the city's Midtown neighbourhood that left two people hospitalized in stable condition.

Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee said in an email that a group of people were attending a movie release party at the Midtown Art Cinema Tuesday night and an argument led to gunfire.

Chafee says an off-duty officer working at the theatre heard the gunshots. A woman was shot in her leg and a man was shot in his buttocks. Chafee says no arrests have been made.

The shooting at about 10:30 p.m. came hours after an announcement that another Atlanta theatre would show "The Interview," a political satire film on North Korea that prompted backlash and a cyberattack on Sony Pictures Entertainment. Midtown is not screening that film.
