British Cinema Chain Drops Film Nationwide Amid Muslim Protests

A British cinema chain has dropped the showing of a film nationwide after its Arabian holy legend subject matter prompted protests from some members of the Muslim community.

Bolton Cineworld was the first outlet to say it would no longer be taking bookings for “The Lady of Heaven” following an outcry from some Muslims in the northwest England town.

On Saturday, a crowd of Muslim men protested outside against the screening of the film, complaining that the film “negatively depicts” Islamic religious figures. Smaller protests have also been filmed outside Vue cinemas in Croydon and Birmingham.
