Man Trapped Head in Cinema Seat

By Gary Cutlack on at

A man visiting the posh seats of a Birmingham cinema endured a nightmare even worse than having to see the latest DC universe film, as his head somehow managed to get stuck in a seat.

The clue as to what went wrong seems to be in the fact that he was in the Gold Class seats in his local Vue cinema in Birmingham, where the luxury seating in the over-18s VIP section includes such delights as a moveable footrest. While searching for a dropped phone, the man's head got stuck in the mechanism of the electronic footrest, triggering quite the panic among staff.

Before you get all righteous about phones in cinemas the local paper says this happened at the end of the film, with staff eventually freeing him by breaking off the chair's leg-rest. [Birmingham Live]
