Now another film the cinemas don’t want to show you

Digital Cinema Media (DCM) has refused to show an advert for the Christmas Starts With Christ campaign at Odeon, Vue and Cineworld multiplexes – because it is “too religious”. It shows a nativity scene. Spokesmsn from ChurchAds.net, and CofE are quoted. DCM recently banned a CofE advert featuring the Lord’s Prayer, due to be screened before the new Star Wars film.
