Quentin Tarantino fans will be relieved to hear that ‘The Hateful Eight’ will still be screened at The Light cinema in Wisbech, despite a distribution dispute surrounding his new film,

Whilst leading UK cinema chain Cineworld – which owns more than 800 cinemas – has boycotted the director’s eighth film, showings are to go ahead at Cambridge and Wisbech.

A Cineworld statement said: “We can confirm that The Hateful Eight will not be shown at our cinemas.

“Unfortunately we were not able to reach an agreement with the movie’s distributor.”

John Farrugia, senior manager of The Light, however, said: “We did not want to let our customers down, so we will be showing The Hateful Eight in two screens at both sites from Friday.”
