A power outage hit hundreds of customers in downtown Evanston on Tuesday, canceling movies at the local theater.

The outage began about 1:45 p.m. and impacted 800 customers at its peak, Commonwealth Edison spokeswoman Noelle Gaffney said.

The outage resulted from a cable fault, and workers restored power to the area by about 3:45 p.m., Gaffney said. The area impacted was bordered by Simpson Street on the north, Davis Street on the south, Benson Avenue on the east and Darrow Avenue on the west, Gaffney said.

The outage affected Century Theatres, 1715 Maple Ave. Movies were canceled during the outage.
