‘Highly contagious’ urine forces a movie theater to evacuate, Washington firefighters say

BY DON SWEENEY, December 01, 2019 07:30 AM

Moviegoers at a showing of “Frozen II” had a whole other adventure Friday when a misdelivered package forced the theater to evacuate, The Seattle Times reports.

The package, marked “highly contagious human substance,” contained urine samples meant for a Tacoma medical clinic about 40 miles away, KOMO reported. It’s not clear how it ended up outside the North Bend Theatre east of Seattle.

Someone found the package at 5:15 p.m. and opened it, discovering the dire warning and prompting a hazardous materials response by firefighters, who cleared the theater, according to The Seattle Times.

“Box has been isolated and one patient treated as a precaution,” Eastside Firefighters posted on Twitter. The person who opened the box was screened but no one was hurt in the incident.

Sgt. Paul Graham with the Snoqualmie Police Department said emergency crews properly disposed of the misdelivered urine samples, KOMO reported.

“All is well,” read a post to the North Bend Theatre site, thanking firefighters and noting it would reopen Saturday. “There was no danger.”

I have worked at this theatre since fall of 2006 (A little bit after the previous owner passed away and the theatre changed ownership) and it really is just the greatest place. The owner was awarded North Bend’s Citizen of the Year in 2010. The theatre shows a Christmas classics series every year as well as a fall classics series. First runs, independent and aspiring films, mountain films such as the Banff Mountain Film Fest, special needs films, birthday parties, and the occasional video game. There’s a The auditorium currently seats 275 and there is a portable stage. There are also big plans for this big little theatre in the works…

I think the film is “March of the Penguins”. Probably too long for the marquee.
