The Maui News - A phoned bomb threat at the Maui Mall Megaplex Cinema prompted theater management to evacuate approximately 280 patrons about 7:45 p.m. on Saturday Dec. 29, 2012, according to Maui Police Department spokesman Lt. Wayne Ibarra.

The manager called 911, and police and firefighters responded to the scene, he said.

After 8 p.m., police and firefighters searched the theaters as a precaution, Ibarra said.

The Kahului Fire Station's Engine 10 was on standby at the scene, said Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga.

At 8:38 p.m., the theater complex had been checked and declared safe, emergency dispatchers reported.

A customer said theater patrons were herded outside near the Maui Mall's fountain, where they were given vouchers allowing them to see a movie at another time.
