On Sunday 28th of February a mysterious figure entered the Tyneside Cinema on Pilgrim Street in Newcastle dressed in a rabbit suit and walked away with canisters containing one of the films from this year’s Northern Lights Film Festival as this CCTV footage shows: http://www.youtube.com/user/letsmakemischief2010.
We would like members of the public to help us identify who this mysterious figure is, uncover his motivations for the theft, and assist us in retrieving the stolen canisters before the festival’s closing night on the 27th of March when the stolen film should be playing to a packed house.
On leaving the cinema the rabbit dropped a memory stick and we have uploaded the contents to a website where you can review the information.
Anyone providing evidence leading to the return of the canister and unlocking clues to the name of the film, which has until now been kept under close wraps, will be rewarded with sought-after tickets to this limited access closing weekend event.
We need your help! Go to: www.letsmakemischief.com to find out more and take part.
