ST. GEORGE — A man went in to see “Non-Stop” at 9:50 p.m. on Tuesday at St. George’s Megaplex Pineview Stadium Theater, at 2376 East Red Cliffs Drive, and fell asleep during the movie. As the cleaning crew went in to clear the theater around 1:20 a.m. Wednesday they saw the man who they apparently thought was dead and called 911, Sgt. Sam Despain said.
“The building was technically closed at that point and they were following regular procedure,” Jeff Whipple, vice president of marketing for Megaplex Theaters said. “After the movie ends, if they come across someone they are to call dispatch …. We have a great relationships with dispatch. We have guests that fall asleep in movies all the time but usually their parents carry them out.”
There was no medical emergency and responders woke up the man who went to the bathroom, splashed water on his face and left, Whipple said.
