A Clockwork Orange...

Stanley Kubrick banned A Clockwork Orange not long after it was released at the cinema in the UK after all the negative publicity in the press. The ban was vigorously pursued during Kubrick's lifetime. The Scala cinema at Kings Cross in London defied the ban in 1993, and was sued and lost. Unable to meet the cost of the defence, the cinema club was forced into receivership. It's now the Scala night club. Shame really as we used to love going to the Scala cinema all-nighters back in the mid-1980s.
