In some theaters across the country, clowns began appearing inside screenings of the horror flick, causing unease in the audience.
At a movie theater in England, one patron walked into the theater to find someone dressed as Pennywise the Dancing Clown from It sitting in a seat by himself while holding a red balloon.

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.
