Martin Scorsese - Russian Cinema Bosses Fined For Screening The Wolf Of Wall Street
Bosses at movie theatres in Novosibirsk, Russia have been fined for screening Martin Scorsese's Oscar-nominated movie The Wolf Of Wall Street.
Local officials accused the cinema owners of drug-use propaganda by showing the film and ordered them to pay the equivalent of $113,000 (£70, 600).
The ruling follows a complaint from officers at Siberia's Federal Service for Narcotics Control, who felt the movie "reflected a subculture of drug abusers" and idealised the use of illegal drugs, according to Russian news agency Itar-Tass.
The film features Leonardo DiCaprio as real-life con artist, stockbroker and wild man Jordan Belfort and features scenes of debauchery, sex and drug-taking.
