INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV) -

A woman says she was disgusted at what she found inside an Independence movie theatre. 

The Health Department is investigating the AMC 20 after a video she posted went viral on Facebook. 

In the video, she scans the aisles with her flashlight on, revealing grimy, stained seats. She shared the video on AMC's Facebook page and called the health department.

The AMC 20 at Independence Commons is the same theater that had a report of bed bugs just last October.

The health department was called in to investigate, but found no evidence of bed bugs since the theatre has already been treated for them.

AMC tells KCTV5 the auditoriums are swept after every show and cleaned every night. 

They did not say how often seats are cleaned, but tell KCTV5 they're booking a deep clean.
