A movie theater in Texas even hosted an all-clown screening of the film for those who aren't so easily freaked out by those in clown makeup.
A movie theater in Idaho banned patrons from dressing up as circus performers before a screening Thursday, a day before It opened nationwide.
Many other moviegoers have posted about clowns being inside the theater during their screenings.
