Westbury movie theater evacuated during premiere

Officials say movie-goers attending an early screening of the new Hunger Games movie in Westbury last night were evacuated. 



Westbury Stadium 12 on Brush Hollow Road was evacuated around 8 p.m. in the middle of the movie. 



According to Newsday, there was a disturbance involving a customer at the theater.



Police say the audience was allowed back in a short time later.



Meanwhile, Nassau Police tell News 12 that they assisted Massachusetts State Police to arrest a "wanted" man not too far from the movie theater near the BJs. 



Police say they searched the theater in case the incidents were connected, but so far they don't believe they were.
