Bedbugs have attacked a popular movie theater in Times Square as New York battles the persistent pests.
Bedbugs were found in two seats at the Empire 25 during an Aug. 3 inspection, and a guest reported being bitten this past weekend. Pest control experts were called, the seats were removed and new ones were installed.
Bedbugs also have been found in several New York stores. City officials have instituted plans to fight the infestations.
