A partial ceiling collapse at the Apollo Theatre in London Thursday left at least 76 injured, with outlets reporting that seven people have serious but not life-threatening injuries. The 775-seat theater, built in 1901, was filled with roughly 700 people for a showing of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time when a 30-foot square area of plaster fell from the five-story ceiling.
