    The film reviewer, Margaret Pomeranz, has been taken into police custody tonight after a failed attempt to screen the banned sexually explicit American film, Ken Park, in Sydney.

    Police moved in to halt the screening at Balmain Town Hall moments after Ms Pomeranz and a number of other anti-censorship activists pressed the play button on a DVD player.

    Around 300 people in the audience erupted in cheers and are now listening to a number of speakers, including actress Sasha Horler and the ABC's David Marr.

    Ms Pomeranz is at present at the next door police station together with a copy of the Ken Park DVD, which was refused classification by Australia's censors.
