Apes Attend Planet Of the Apes Screening
By Staff on Thursday, July 17, 2014
A Pair of Two-Year-Old Chimpanzees have attended a screening of ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ at a South Carolina cinema in a stunt for the local safari park.
According to ABC news the chimps watched the film with some 1,000 other cinema-goers at the IMAX screen in the cinema complex.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the 3-D sequel to the 2011 blockbuster “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” in which genetically evolved apes try to co-exist with the humans who survived the Simian Flu.
Not everybody in the cinema was comfortable having the chimps present.
A Myrtle Beach Safari Park spokesperson said: ‘A couple of people said very clearly “are you sure they should watch this movie, won’t they learn to take over the world? There were several people actually concerned about that.’
