Pictures and videos captured by viewers showed water falling in the lobby.

Disney's The Lion King was in the midst of its performance when the show was cancelled.

One person at the center at the time said an alarm went off shortly after the intermission of the show.

After the alarm went off, the house lights came on and attendees were told they would need to leave the building.

The show was sold out with about 2,400 people attending.

Robert Schiller, the Executive Vice President of the Adrienne Arsht Center, said flash floods in Downtown Miami caused the drainage line to leak during the performance.

Heavy showers had hit the area Sunday evening.

Pictures sent in to Local 10 showed water falling near the lights below the 4th floor and above the balcony landing on the first floor. There was also standing water in some areas.

Schiller said the leak was being repaired late Sunday.

The next show is scheduled for Tuesday evening.

Anyone who was at the show Sunday evening is asked to call the box office Monday to learn their options about seeing another show or receiving a refund. The box office number is 786-468-2337.
