SECOND CINEMA CHAIN DROPS GANG MOVIE AFTER MASS BRAWL

Showcase Cinemas have followed the announcement by Vue

A second cinema chain has withdrawn gang film Blue Story from its venues after a mass brawl at a screening in Birmingham.

Gangs of youths, some armed with machetes, clashed at the Star City cinema on Saturday evening and seven police officers were injured in the violence.

Six teenagers, including four 14-year-olds and a 13-year-old girl, were arrested in connection with the disorder and have been bailed by police.

Showcase Cinemas has now pulled the film from the listings of its 21 outlets across the UK.

It follows the move by Vue, which runs Star City, who said it will no longer be showing the film at any of its 91 UK venues.
