Default bomb threat

Tonight at the Loew's theater at the Waterfront there was a screening of the new DVD for the players, not open to the public. I'm not sure who all showed up but I know Ben, Hines, Antwaan and Bettis were definitely there. apparently there was a bomb threat and the guys had to evacuate the building and didn't get to see it
everyone is safe, thank God for that. I would probably freak out if something happened to one of our guys!
has anyone else heard anything on this? apparently WPXI reported it, my mom saw it on tv but I missed it. I'm sure WTAE and KDKA probably mentioned something too. does anyone else have any more info?

It's sad, they built that area up very nicely and now they are going to lose business. A few months ago there was a shooting directly outside the theatre. Before that there was a fight inside the theatre.

Build something nice and it get's torn down to shit. All the stores and restaurants are going to lose money if incidents like this keep occuring. Personally, I stay away from the area since those incidents. Between the fights, shootings and drugs, it's not worth it. Ruin something good. Smart.

I'll stick to the South Side and Bloomfield.

Steelers evacuated from theater

HOMESTEAD, Pa. (AP) - Members of the Pittsburgh Steelers were evacuated from a movie theater Wednesday night after of a bomb threat interrupted a private screening of a new DVD of last month's Super Bowl victory, police said.

Authorities evacuated the Loews Cineplex at The Waterfront in Homestead after the threat was received from an anonymous caller to 911, Homestead Police Chief Chris Deasy said.
"It said there was a bomb that was going to go off at a Loews theater," Deasy said.

The caller had a male voice and made no reference to the Steelers, Deasy added.

Minutes after the call at 8:03 p.m, police escorted the players out of the theater and spent about an hour-and-a-half searching the premises using at least one bomb-sniffing dog. They found no evidence of a bomb.

An estimated 1,000 moviegoers were also told to leave the cineplex.

The players included Ben Roethlisberger, Antwaan Randle El, Jerome Bettis and Hines Ward. Hall of Fame running back Franco Harris also attended the event. Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said they all went home after the evacuation.

Earlier, fans greeted the players as they arrived with relatives and associates for the private screening of the NFL-produced film, which went on sale at Pittsburgh stores Tuesday.

"The ball's still rolling from the Super Bowl," Roethlisberger said before the screening.

He admitted he hadn't seen much of his teammates since winning the title Feb. 5 in Detroit.

"It's an opportunity to see these guys again and just relax a little bit," Roethlisberger said.

The video features footage of the Super Bowl - from plays on the field to sideline antics - and includes sound from microphones worn by some of the players in their 21-10 win over Seattle.

Earlier Wednesday, Bettis signed copies of the DVD for fans who had flocked to a local store. He said he would sign at least 1,000 copies.

It was probably done via conference call from Carson Palmer, Marvin Lewis and Mike Holmgren.
