Moviegoers in Wimbledon had to be evacuated during a screening of Blue Story after a fight broke out last week.

A 24-year-old and his girlfriend were among those at the 9.40pm Friday screening of the movie at the Odeon Wimbledon.

The man, who chose to remain anonymous, said the whole thing was "a bit strange."

"They evacuated the screening room and then after like 20 minutes they cleaned up the massive mess that got made in the part where the fight broke out and restarted the film," he told the Wimbledon Times.

"I saw some guys leaving and one guy was saying he’d got a cut under his eye.

"And a guy in my row when we came back in had his knuckles wrapped up and looked like he’d been bleeding."

The film tells the story of two boys caught up in a street war in south London and has come under fire after a mass brawl involving machetes broke out in Birmingham.

That incident led Vue Cinema to say it would no longer be showing the film in any of its 91 UK venues.

Odeon has been contacted for comment but is yet to respond, although there is no indication it will follow suit from Vue, as Odeon's website still lists times and dates for when the movie will be shown.

The 24-year-old added: "Afterwards the staff were comping everyone drinks and everyone was abusing them hard."

A spokesman for the Met police confirmed they arrived at the cinema in The Broadway within shortly after being called.

"We were called to the Wimbledon Odeon to reports of a group of kids fighting," he said.

"Police attended within minutes and no one was at the location.

"No victims were there and there are no suspects."
