Popcorn? Licorice? Blood? Bedbugs hit NYC theaters

NEW YORK (AP) - Bedbugs have attacked a popular movie theater in Times Square as New York battles the persistent pests.

The AMC Empire 25 in Times Square was sprayed overnight and reopened Wednesday. A guest at the AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9 theater also reported a bite in late July.

Spokesman Justin Scott says all AMC theaters in Manhattan have been inspected. He says the chain takes every report seriously and acts to ensure the health of guests and employees.

Bedbugs were found in two seats at the Empire 25 during an Aug. 3 inspection, and a guest reported being bitten this past weekend.

Pest control experts were called, the seats were removed and new ones were installed.

Bedbugs also have been found in several New York stores. City officials have instituted plans to fight the infestations.
