He 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 behavior 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 going in. They were wiping down seats before the start of the 8.20pm film. 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.”


A local man who wished to remain anonymous said, “We knew there was an incident but we didn’t expect it to be at Fifty Shades of Grey. We heard that a guy had asked women to quieten down because they were spoiling the film and one of them hit him with a bottle. A guy who had been in the cinema said it was pretty much unprovoked and the victim was shocked.”


A statement was given by spokeswoman for Grosvenor cinema, “I can confirm that an incident occurred on Saturday 14 February following an early evening showing of 50 Shades Of Grey. This was an isolated incident that was dealt with rapidly by cinema staff and stewards, as a result of which, Police Scotland attended and made an arrest. Despite press reports, nobody was glassed and a wine bottle was not used as a weapon. Those involved did not require hospital attention. We welcomed nearly 2000 customers over the weekend, including four further showings on Saturday night which passed without incident.”
