I just went to see the remake of Nightmare on Elm Street, and noticed a patch of distortion on the screen; assumed it was a dent. After the movie, I took a closer look at the screen. It wasn't a dent, but a BULGE. The screen was actually bulging out (towards the seats) at that point!
I can understand the screen denting or tearing if people throw stuff at it, but what would cause the screen to bulge outwards like that?

I would guess either a speaker or some item that they are storing fell forward into the screen. I've seen too many theatres that utilize the back screen area like a storeroom (ladders, left over construction materials, broken equipment, etc.).
