ROMFORD, England – A theatre in England has posted some spine-tingling security camera footage on YouTube which seems to show a chair in a deserted auditorium moving on its own.

Brookside Theatre wrote on the YouTube posting that the footage was recorded at 4:15 a.m. Sunday July 27th on their CCTV camera inside the auditorium.

At :13 seconds into the video a chair in the dark and empty space moves.

Jai Sepple, theatre manager, told the Romford Recorder newspaper he noticed the chair at an odd angle the next morning and decided to review the security footage to determine what had happened.

“We’ve had so many strange things happen over the years but this has to be the freakiest,” Sepple told the paper.  “When I looked back at the CCTV, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!”

Making matters even weirder, Sepple said the whole thing happened after a psychic medium visited the threate for readings on Saturday night.

According to its website the Brookside was originally build in the 1950s as a community hall.  The hall was to commemorate those the local area had lost in World War II.  The hall fell out of use, but in 2012 it was refurbished and reopened as a performance space.

    Does anyone else see a ball of light move after the chair move? It goes from the right edge down to the middle bottom of screen

  • Jordan

    This is so obviously faked. All they did was crop around the chair and make it move down – you can tell because all the artifacts around the chair also move.

    Being a Paranormal investigator I do not think it was a rodent that moved the chair. The Orbs you see are bugs and dust and there is a light near the door in the back

    Really looking at this, mean really looking at it you’ll see (before the chair moves) flickers in the air by the upper left door. Looking even more closely the air seems to swirl around as this orb like ball bounces from the mid right frame downward to the bottom left, and the air and lights continue to be distorted throughout the entire video. And how the orb flows it almost looks like a tennis ball being thrown around the room.

    The orb does seem like a bug, but if this place was deserted, then what is with all the sutble light pillars moving from center aisle, to top center and other similar ones moving from top left to top righgives the impression a church congregation or a town meeting is eight coming or going. The pillars stand out like shadow people!

    Haha. Show a crowd a ghost, they will tell you they see two. Show the internet a video of a chair moving and they will see; bugs, balls, men, “simple poltergiest”(as if ANY proof of life after death wouldn’t be, In the least, magnificent), rats, cropping and ALIENS. Still waiting on th aliens though.

      You should Google a dude named Phil Schneider. Then tell us you’re STILL waiting for the Aliens. They have been around here probably alot longer than you have. Just because you don’t see something doesn’t mean it’s not there.

  • Dan

    Aliens? Your telling me that a civilization travels trillions of light years to get here, finds life, then sits in the background and watches? No. Anyone who thinks extra terrestrials are here is sadly nieve. And they definitely are not moving chairs. I’m an astro physicist. There are no aliens here. If there were then either, we would be gone or they would be among us without disguise. They would have technology so far advanced they would have nothing to fear from us. They aren’t hiding. I believe in ghosts. I do believe that this is truly a poltergiest. Aliens, no.

    Why is there never any of his kind of footage in hi def? In this day and age where even our cell phones have high definition video cameras on them it astounds me that anyone still uses such low def security cameras…
