Count Jay Glazer among the many Star Wars fans who rushed in to theaters to see the show on Thursday, but there was a great disturbance in The Force that almost prevented him from seeing the film.

No clue. Two fire engines, doesn't seem like anything major but man there's a lot of pissed off Star Wars fans— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) December 18, 2015
It turns out the evacuation was not due to any serious danger, but rather someone accidentally pulling a fire alarm, according to CBS LA, so the angry sci-fi fans were returned to the theater and the movie began again.
Back in theater, they were nice enough to rewind movie, wait for us get back in our seats b4 restarting. Weird night, world we live in now— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) December 18, 2015
While waiting in the parking lot for the film to resume, Glazer also reported that Yoda could miss 4-6 weeks with a knee sprain, and that the Empire is unhappy with Grand Moff Tarkin‘s performance.
