The Rio cinema in Dalston played 20 seconds of ‘La La Land’ at the start of ‘Moonlight’

The cheeky staff at the Rio cinema pulled off a hilarious spoof of the monumental Oscars mess-up last night, playing 20 seconds of ‘La La Land’ at the start of ‘Moonlight’. Luckily the sold-out audience got the joke straight-away, breaking into a huge round of applause. ‘It wasn’t the actual feature film, but a few seconds from a teaser trailer,’ the Rio's duty manager told us today over the phone. ‘Then we shut it down, and did a bit of fumbling to make it look like we made a mistake.’

The Rio, a single-screen community cinema, has extended its run of 'Moonlight' and will be showing the Oscar winner for another week: 'It's perfect for our local audience.' 

And in other Oscar oopsie news, this might be the best of the memes doing the rounds. 

Here's how the Oscars mix-up happened. Eleven crazy moments from the 2017 Oscars everyone will be talking about. The night's full list of winners - and everything else you need to know about the 2017 Oscars
