[IPAC-List] Yelling Fire?

Hello IPACers,

Does anyone know when the question about a fire in a crowded movie
theater first appeared in a major intelligence test? My guess it dates
to a time of lax building codes concerning exit signage, exit size,
aisle size, aisle length, and (no) fixed seating, and a time of larger
movie theaters.

How is yelling fire different from pulling a fire box in a theater?
When one pulls a fire box the fire klaxon sounds so all call hear it.
What am I missing?
