A black family says a Philadelphia movie theater manager called police when they tried to retrieve their children from a theater after getting a refund.
Ismael and Ashley Jimenez told Philly.com they had taken their youngest son with them to complain about a beeping noise during the showing of “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” on Friday, leaving their three children and two of their friends in the theater.
Ashley Jimenez tried to go back inside to retrieve the children but was denied entry. Jimenez says she went anyway and a manager called police. In a video posted to Facebook, about a half-dozen officers are seen responding.
Cinemark didn’t respond to a request for comment.
Two black men were arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks in April when a manager called police because they hadn’t bought anything.
