Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A night at the movies is interrupted.

The Chenango Fire Department responds to a mini-van into the building just after 9 p.m. Monday.

They say a stuck accelerator is to blame, but the accident is still under investigation.

They say the woman driving the Dodge Caravan blacked out after hitting the building.

She was the only person in the car and was evaluated on the scene.

"The vehicle sat there with the tires spinning. That's what the smoke is inside the building. It's from the tires burning for a period of time. She revived herself, came back around and backed into that place about the same time we arrived on the scene," said Assistant Fire Chief David Leader from the Chenango Fire Department.

Crews worked to vent the smoke out of the Regal Cinemas.

The Broome County Sheriff's Department is investigating the accident.
