Showcase Cinemas have axed Blue Story, a gangster film, from four cinemas across the UK
Showcase Cinemas across the UK will no longer be showing the gangster film, Blue Story after several youths started a brawl using machetes at Star City Complex in Birmingham.
It comes after Vue banned screening Blue Story from all its branches.
Listings have been taken down from the Showcase website and an automated message at cinemas confirms they’ll no longer be showing the film.
What are your views on this, violence in movies is not new so is there a link between the movie and the outbreak of violence from teenagers?

We spoke to the BBC in Coventry Monday to say, we cannot see the relationship between the violence and the Film. The film is 15 certificate not 18. There is an endless list of violent films, TV shows, and Video games. The majority of the population are not influenced by this and view as entertainment.
The Uk is currently affected by knife crime and gang rivalry in all major cities, to blame the outbreak on a film that has only been released in the last few days seems bizarre to us. There are deeper issues and forces at play here.
Online commentators have slammed the decision by Vue cinemas as “racist” while critics suggest the film promotes gang violence.
Talking on this morning
Will you want to watch the movie more now?
