BIZARRE footage shows the Elton John biopic paused mid-movie as police and security guards flood a cinema to eject an unruly customer.
At least five police officers and two security guards are called in to deal with the man who had been causing a disturbance and then refused to leave.
Other cinema goers can be seen watching the scene unfold as Taron Egerton, the actor who portrays John, is freeze-framed in the background.
The incident at the Cineworld in Fountain Park, Edinburgh, was caught on camera by Rachel Munro.
The clip begins with someone saying “I don’t think he’s the police” as a security guard makes his way towards the awkward customer.
The man appears to say “karma will come back on you”, prompting laughter in the theatre.
The customer, in a black Superdry jacket and wearing glasses, complains that the security man has “got no authority – right, show me your authority”.
As the dispute continues, a frustrated cinema viewer can be heard saying: “Get out!”
The security man offers the customer “one more chance” before five police officers arrive on the scene.
The officer in the lead can be heard saying: “Do you want to come with us now?”
Cineworld confirmed they screening was disrupted and said customers were offered complimentary tickets.
A spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that on Sunday, June 2, a screening of Rocketman was disrupted by a customer incident.
“The safety and security of everyone at our cinemas is our highest priority and we take inappropriate behaviour extremely seriously.
“Our staff promptly responded and engaged the police to assist with the matter and as the film was temporarily interrupted, we offered remaining customers complimentary tickets.”
A Police Scotland spokesman said: ”We can confirm we received a call relating to two men causing a disturbance within a cinema screen at around 9.40pm on Sunday 2nd June.
“Both men left with no crime having been committed and no requirement for any further police action.”
