Kids and their parents in the US expecting to see Disney's latest movie Frozen were accidentally treated to porn.

Instead of the feisty princess of the PG-rated Disney feature, the audience in a cinema in Florida saw two minutes of explicit scenes including oral sex.

The projectionist apparently mixed up a fill-in cartoon with the the red-band trailer for Lars Von Triers' upcoming film Nymphomaniac, featuring Shia LaBeouf having sex on screen.

According to Fox 13, the mistake happened when the theatre was experiencing some technical difficulties that delayed the start of Frozen, so they temporarily played another cartoon.

"They put in the filler, it looked like Steamboat Willie, the old Mickey Mouse cartoon, and then all of a sudden it goes into this other scene," Lynn Greene who was there with grandchildren said.

Although the cinema said the clip played for less than two minutes, Greene said it seemed to last much longer.

"It seemed like forever when you're trying to, you know, cover a little guy's eyes," she said.

"I didn't have enough hands to cover his ears too and he got the sound down real good."

The theatre offered free movie tickets to those in the audience.

Maybe they can go back for some fun movies like The Loin King, The Privates in the Caribbean or Moby's Dick.
