Father’s rights groups, New Fathers 4 Justice, warned cinemas to “expect the unexpected”. The film is being shown at Cineworld and Vue at various times from Monday.
“Equality for all includes fathers after family breakdown,” he said. “The lack of justice and equality for fathers to see their children is one of the biggest social scandals of our time.
“Fathers are six times as likely to play an active role in bringing up their kids as fathers a generation or two ago.
“Nowadays, we don’t just attend the birth of our children – unheard of only 50 years ago – but we are also more likely to play with, bathe their children and take them to school.
