chimps dawn of the planet of the apesSo, two chimps walked into a movie theater ...

Sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it actually happened last weekend! As first reported by The Daily Mail, a pair of two-year-old chimps, Vali and Sugriva, attended a screening of "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Apparently, the two -- already "big fans" of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" -- did as any other moviegoer did: bought tickets, purchased some popcorn and sodas, and settled into their seats to wait for the show to begin.

Bhagavan Antle, direct or of the chimps' residence Myrtle Beach Safari, said Vali and Sugriva are big movie lovers in general.

"The older one, Vali, is a very bright guy, he's watched the 'Lord of The Rings' many times, and he could follow the whole plot of the movie," he noted.
