"After receiving death threats to himself and his family as a result of the controversy, Film Maker Stanley Kubrick took the unusual step of removing the film from circulation in Britain. It was unavailable in the United Kingdom (except on Pirated videos) until its re-release in 2000, a year after Kubrick's death, although it could be seen in continental Europe. The Scala cinema in London's Kings Cross showed the film in the early 1990s, and at Kubrick's insistence, the cinema was sued and put out of business, thus depriving London of one of its very few independent cinemas. It is now the Scala club." - Wiki
