An audience in Revere, Mass., bought tickets for the cartoon movie Megamind. Parents thought it strange when the previews promoted R-rated films. When the feature started, it was actually the horror movie Saw 3-D, with a rather gruesome opening scene. The projectionist had started the wrong film.

STEVE INSKEEP, Host:

A projectionist is probably in trouble in the town of Revere, Massachusetts. An audience in that town bought tickets for the cartoon movie "Megamind." Parents thought it a little strange when the previews promoted R-rated films. And then the feature started; it was a mistake. It was actually the horror movie "Saw 3-D."
