The sign, which was reportedly removed after public pressure, assured parents that the venue could “fast-forward” through a kiss between two female characters which has caused the film to be banned in 14 countries.

The warning, posted outside the 89er Theatre in Kingfisher, Oklahoma, read: “Attention parents: The management of this theatre discovered after booking Lightyear that there is a same-sex kissing scene within the first 30 minutes of the Pixar movie.

“We will do all we can to fast-forward through that scene, but it might not be exact.”

KOCO News reported on Tuesday (21 June) that the owner said “they took the sign down and never actually fast-forwarded through any showing of the movie.”
