Moviegoers in Durham had their films interrupted after a popcorn machine caught fire.

The Carmike Theater on Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway was evacuated just after 9:30 p.m. Sunday.

No injuries were reported. The fire was put out quickly by Durham City Firefighters.

The blaze caused a lot of smoke, so firefighters worked hard to ventilate the building before letting moviegoers back in.
