No, we haven’t turned into a satire website like The Daily Mash but this actually happened over the weekend north of the border. To make it even more comical, it wasn’t even a late showing but one at 6pm.
It all went down at the Grosvenor Cinema in Ashton Lane somewhere in Glasgow when police were called there at around 8:00 p.m. It was alleged that three women – aged 31, 38 and 51 – glassed a man in the cinema after he had told them off for being too rowdy during the screening. Apparently staff had to wipe a load of blood off the cinema seats before the next showing of the movie. It was also reported that there were several instances of women puking up in the aisles during the showing as well. Sounds classy for 6 p.m.
A 33 year old guy unfortunately named Michael Bolton (you know like the famous long haired Christian singer) attended the next screening and explained what had happened:
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.
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.
Like I said at the beginning of the article, it sounds almost too good to be true right? I guess that’s just what happens up in Glasgow. To be honest we’re surprised they didn’t have another inappropriate fireworks display to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
