Inspired by the Best Picture award faux pas at the Oscars ceremony, the Rio Cinema in London on Wednesday played La La Land for 20 seconds for viewers who had come to watch Moonlight. “It wasn’t the actual feature film, but a few seconds from a teaser trailer. Then we shut it down, and did a bit of fumbling to make it look like we made a mistake,” the duty manager told Time Out London.

Rio Cinema manager Andrew Woodyatt told that the audience appreciated the joke. “It would have been quite awkward if they hadn’t got the joke – but luckily they did,” he added. After the Oscar win, Moonlight has been attracting a lot of audience. The single-screen theatre has now extended its run of Moonlight by a week, reported The Independent.

La La Land was mistakenly announced the winner of the Best Picture award instead of Moonlight. Accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCooper had taken full responsibility for the gaffe at the Oscars ceremony and apologised for it. Accountant Brian Cullinan had given the wrong envelope to presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. It had the name of Emma Stone for La La Land. Beatty showed it to Dunaway to clear his confusion. Dunaway then announced that La La Land was the winner.

On Wednesday, the organisers of the Academy Awards had said that they have barred the two PwC accountants who were responsible for the gaffe from working at the Oscars again. Cullinan along with Martha L Ruiz had tabulated the votes and handed over the envelopes with the winners’ names at the award ceremony.
