The Force may be strong, but can it contain a theater-full of angry fans?

A projector broke down at Hollywood's Arclight Cinemas late Thursday night --midway through a screening of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

To make matters worse, it then skipped to a later part of the movie.

Multiple videos posted online on Friday show theater-goers seriously freaking out -- some ironically, and others not so much.

"Noooooo!" one man shouts in a YouTube clip posted by michirubio, as theater staff are seen desperately trying to solve the problem.

Movie-goer Erik Melendez posted a similar video to Facebook, where he claimed the film was "spoiled" by the glitch and "everyone in the theater went crazy."

The theater went into mayhem, people ran out, yelling 'Stop the movie!,' closing their eyes -- anything to not witness a spoiler," he later told LAist.

The issue was eventually fixed and the movie continued, according to CBS Los Angeles.

It's not been revealed what caused the problem, and Arclight offered a full refund for all the viewers, according to Mediaite.

Michael Melendez told CBS that, "it kind of ruined our night," adding, "but it’s better to tell these fun stories than the sad ones you hear about."

Several movie-goers took to Twitter to complain, or laugh, about the incident:
