Disabled Man Kicked Out Of Movie Theater Because Of Noisy Ventilator
[su_right_ad]Richard Bridger was watching “Taken 3” with his caretaker in Epsom, Surrey, and was asked to leave 40 minutes into the film.
The 31-year-old, whose Duchenne muscular dystrophy confines him to an electric wheelchair, was then told not to return on Saturday nights by the member of staff.
It came after six of the 200 people watching the film complained that Mr Bridger’s ventilator was making too much noise.
The incident was described as ‘disgusting’ by Mr Bridger’s father who added the sound of his son’s ventilator is no louder than that of rustling crisp packets and crunching popcorn…
‘Richard has been going to the cinema since it opened and, in the last four years, has required the use of the ventilator to keep his carbon dioxide levels down which can be life-threatening if they are raised too high.
‘All he wanted to do was go out and watch a film and it takes a lot of organisation to arrange for Richard to go out.
