A popular movie theater in Times Square is joining the growing list of locations in the city being treated for bed bugs.
The AMC Empire 25 Theater on 42nd Street shut down for bed bug treatment last night, after inspectors found the pests in one of the auditoriums.
The inspectors were brought in after a guest reported being bitten.
The theater was originally treated when bed bugs were found on August 3 and it will be treated again in two weeks as a precaution.
The city has recently unveiled an initiative aimed at cracking down on the annoying pests, with recommendations including a public awareness campaign and better training for bed bug inspectors.
In recent weeks, the Brooklyn district attorney's office, Time Warner Inc. and some big-name stores in Midtown have dealt with bed bug invasions.
