Report – By Leonnie Wayang in Port Moresby

The controversial erotic film Fifty Shades of Grey has been refused classification by the Papua New Guinea Censorship Office, preventing it from being shown in cinemas.

The movie was planned to be screened at the Paradise Cinemas in Vision City and Central Waigani in Port Moresby last Friday, on the eve of Valentine’s Day.

However, as it was not yet rated or approved by the Censorship Office for public consumption, screening was postponed pending a decision from the office.
