Secret Cinema has revealed that it showed Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator at a one-off secret screening on Sunday to protest against ‘the attack on freedom of expression’ represented by the Sony hacking.

Staged on Sunday at simultaneous events in London, New York, San Francisco and Rome, the 1940 film portrays fictitious dictator Adenoid Hynkel, a thinly-veiled version of Hitler. In London the movie was shown at the Troxy Cinema, while an additional event in Los Angeles screened The Red Chapel.

Over 2,000 people attended from across the five cities and at least £11,500 of the total proceeds will go to global free speech charity Article 19.
