ROMFORD, England (PIX11) – After the curtain fell and the lights switched off, another kind of play began at an English theater.

Hours after a psychic medium visited the Brookside Theatre in Romford, surveillance cameras show movement in the otherwise empty room, leading many – including the theater’s manager – to suspect paranormal activity, the Romford Record reports.

Thirteen seconds into the video, a chair in the third-to-last row appears to move by itself. At 28 seconds, a table appears to be pulled.

It was recorded by surveillance cameras at the Brookside Theatre in Romford, England.

Theatre manager Jai Sepple told the Record that he straightened the chairs before he left the theater July 26. But by 4:15 a.m. the next day, they were moved.

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

The theatre’s deputy manager Harri Sepple uploaded the video to YouTube. Titled “Unexplained Ghost CCTV Footage,” the video has been watched more than 800,000 times in three days.

It was by chance that Jai Sepple even noticed the strange happening. He said he usually only checks the surveillance video if there’s been an incident at the theatre.

The psychic medium who visited the theatre that night called the discovery “phenomenal.”

“When I was doing to the reading, I did feel a strong sense but just didn’t know what it was,” Roy Roberts told the Recorder. “This is unbelievable.”
