Screening Of 50 Shades Of Grey Ends In Vomiting, Glassing & Arrests

Art & Culture

Earlier today the Daily Record reported that a special Valentine's Day screening of naughty bondage flick 50 Shades of Grey, taking place in Glasgow's West End, concluded with three women arrested, a man being glassed, vomiting in the aisles and cinema attendants having to "wipe blood off the seats before the next screening of the sexy film". You don't see that in Greenwich Picture House… According to the paper:

"Michael Bolton, 33, who had gone to Fifty Shades with his wife Yvonne, 32, said: “Besides being the worst film I have ever seen, three women were getting arrested and put in a police van when we arrived.

“A woman came out the theatre and said that a guy had been glassed.

“One woman was in handcuffs and another two women were in tears.

“She said that three or four girls had been very loud and were shouting. The man had asked them to shut up and he was glassed.

“It’s a cinema where you can buy drink.

“Only in Glasgow are police called to the cinema. This type of behaviour happens at pubs and
nightclubs – but you don’t expect that at a cinema.

“The guys at the cinema were tidying up the blood before we were going in.

“They were wiping down seats before the start of the 8.20pm film.”

"Michael, of Kelvinbridge, Glasgow, added: “There were also several incredibly drunk women vomiting in the aisle and corridor and several complaints from the other screen about drunk and rowdy folk.”

So, "One woman was in handcuffs and another two women were in tears" – sounds like that's the pitch for the sequel sorted…
