Secret Cinema cancels further Croydon performances after police objection

SECRET Cinema has cancelled further Croydon performances after police raised concerns about the events. After pulling last night's show an hour before guests were due to arrive, it announced on Twitter that "with deep regret" its dates tonight, Saturday and Sunday have been dropped as well. The Advertiser understands the performances were cancelled after police objected to the licence application for the events, which were due to be held at Delta Point in Wellesley Road. Their concerns meant the application would have had to have been heard before Croydon Council's licensing committee, with councillors deciding whether or not it would be granted. It is thought the council were supportive of Secret Cinema, which sees filmgoers buy a ticket - which cost in the region of £50 - for a set time and date without knowing what the film will be. The performances feature music, theatre and roleplay, as well as alcohol and food. Parent company Future Shorts has yet to comment on the cancellations. Those with tickets have expressed anger at the lack of information. Twitter user @MatStace tweeted: "Slightly disappointed that @secretcinema haven't put out a statement yet this morning. Poor form leaving it so late to cancel yesterday." Another, @myscimitar, said: "What is going on? My party of five have lost money, we need to know why." @EmmaPoundTV posted: "Secret Cinema have committed PR suicide after cancelling this weekend. "There's a very angry mob banging at the door of their Facebook page." Delta Point famously featured in the latest Batman film The Dark Knight Rises as hospital Gotham General.Did you have a ticket?
