London riots destroy Sony DVD and CD depot


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Riots and looting in London have affected all walks of life in Britain’s capital city. Late last night, on the third night of violent unrest, London’s entertainment options started to respond to the unrest.

Several movie houses around London were shuttered for the evening in response to the outbursts. In addition, Wednesday night’s friendly soccer match pitting England against Holland was postponed. Worts of all, Sony’s depot for CDs and DVDs, it’s only facility for such storage in the U.K. was “raised to the ground,” according to THR, which is bound to have a ripple effects across the nation’s entertainment sharing platforms.

A Sony spokeswoman told Sky News “the burnt out three-storey 20,000 square meter site would almost certainly impact on delivery of CDs and DVDs to retailers and consumers alike. The fire was still burning Tuesday lunchtime so the full extent of the damage was still being assessed.”

And while some theaters closed for patron and employee safety, managers said it would be back to business today.

“We are planning at the moment is to open our doors at the cinemas and show the scheduled films as normal,” a spokesman said. “It’s very fluid and it all depends on what happens of course.”
