AUGUSTA, Ga. — A movie theater chain says it's reviewing complaints after its Augusta theater showed scenes from the R-rated film "Sex Tape" instead of the children's movie "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" in a summer movie program for youngsters.

Regal Entertainment Group spokesman Russ Nunley said the theater experienced a "programming issue" at Regal Augusta Exchange.

In a statement to The Augusta Chronicle, Nunley said managers addressed concerns of movie patrons and sincerely apologized for what he called an unfortunate event.

Ellen Hotchkiss said she was late for the Tuesday children's movie but walked in with several youngsters who are near middle school age in time to see actress Cameron Diaz removing clothing.

Staff members from the Knoxville, Tennessee-based Regal Entertainment handed out tickets for a later showing of the children's movie program.
