SAN JOSE -- A movie theater was evacuated Saturday afternoon after a water-flow alarm went off, a San Jose police dispatcher said.
The incident was reported at 1:12 p.m. at the AMC Theater in Eastridge Mall, the dispatcher said.
A police officer was on the scene at the time of the alarm and did not request help from the fire department, indicating that it was determined to be a false alarm.
A water-flow alarm is usually triggered when water flows through an automatic fire-sprinkler system, as a warning that the system may have detected a fire.
No injuries were reported in the evacuation.
The incident came a day after a masked gunman in Aurora, Colo., opened fire on a theater packed with people watching the premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises."
Twelve people were killed and 58 were wounded.
A manager at the San Jose theater, who would not give his name, said Saturday night that he could not comment and referred a reporter to the Eastridge mall security office, where no one answered the phone.
The theater is a multiplex that was showing several different films on Saturday afternoon, including "The Dark Knight Rises," "Brave" and "Madagascar 3."
