Three women have been arrested for attacking a man with a glass bottle after he asked them to be quiet during a screaming of steamy mummy porn blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey.
Witnessed told the Daily Record that cinema staff had to wipe glass off the seats between screenings of the film taking place on Valentine's Day. Eyewitnesses also said some drunk women were vomiting in the aisles.
Michael Bolton (not that Michael Bolton), who had gone to see the film with his wife Yvonne at the Grosvenor cinema in Glasgow's west end, 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.
The independent cinema hosts special screenings and houses sofas for some cinema-goers to sit on during films. Its website advertises The Lane bar next door to the cinema, suggesting to patrons that it is "the ideal stop off point for a pre-film drink."
"Only in Glasgow are police called to the cinema," continued Bolton. "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."
Another witness, Michael from Kelvinbridge, 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."
Staff at the cinema refused to comment on the incident and a police spokesperson said the investigation into the assault of a man was ongoing.
