British Cinema Chains Ban “Offensive” Advertisement About Lord’s Prayer In Time For Christmas

Britain’s biggest cinema chains have banned the screening of a film in which the Archbishop of Canterbury and members of the public recite the Lord’s Prayer – because they say it could be offensive to movie-goers.

Odeon, Cineworld and Vue have refused to show the one-minute film the Church of England planned to run in cinemas across the UK before the new Star Wars blockbuster, which opens a week before Christmas.


This is when I long for the Smitey God.

**MOS PICTURE DESK GRABS** **demo version currently and being edited** The Church of England has created a one minute advert to be broadcast in most cinemas (Odeon, Cineworld and Vue - 80 per cent of all screens in the UK) during the launch of the new Star Wars film.
