It captures the aftermath of an alleged physical altercation involving the furious fan and another cinema-goer who took their phone out during the flick.
The alleged attacker is seen screaming in anger at the heckling crowd – who cheer as panicked cinema staff take him from the room.
Before he leaves, he screams: “I am a real Star Wars fan!
“I waited a goddamned year for this and some a**hole turned his phone on next to me.
“Use your f***ing heads … you’re f***ing losers with your phones!”
Cinema workers had to restart the film after the fight erupted just minutes into the screening, according to local media.
Joe Bond, the cinema goer who was allegedly attacked, told CTV News how he had gone to the movies with his wife to see the latest in the Star Wars saga.
He claimed he was texting the couple’s babysitter who was minding their young kids when the film started.
Mr Bond added: “He lost it at me.
