IT WAS PROBABLY the longest two minutes of those parents’ lives.

A cinema in Florida has been forced to apologise after it screened two minutes of explicit material to an audience of children, who were there to see the Disney film Frozen.

According to Fox Tampa Bay technical problems delayed the start of Frozen, so cinema staff attempted to play another child-friendly clip while trying to sort out the main film.

One woman who was in the audience said another cartoon played for a while, before being suddenly replaced by scenes from a R-Rated film.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that the offending film may have been Dallas Buyers Club, which opens with a sex scene.

Regal Cinemas in Florida issued a statement which acknowledged that an “erroneously programmed R-Rated feature did start Friday evening in one auditorium at Park Place”.

The manager of the cinema apologised to the audience after the incident and offered free tickets.
