Cineworld is re-opening cinemas across the country – including Broad Street Birmingham and Solihull – from next month.
The cinema chain closed all 128 of its cinemas in the UK back in mid-March amid the unprecedented coronavirus crisis. Now, film fans can look forward to the chain re-opening from July 10. The chain operates cinema complexes in Birmingham, in Broad Street, and Solihull.
Currently, there is no word on when Cineworld’s rivals like Vue and Odeon are set to re-open their doors to customers.
Cineworld has confirmed strict social distancing measures will be in place, with different seating to ensure families sit together, but away from other customers. Staggered film times are expected, in a bid to reduce capacity, with Perspex screens at tills to keep customers and staff members safe while buying popcorn, snacks and such. Social distancing measures will be in place across the country, with Christopher Nolan’s brand-new blockbuster Tenet among the first films set to be released after cinemas re-open. Staff will regularly, thoroughly clean screens extensively, and hand sanitiser is set to be provided throughout. There will be extra time between film screenings to clean communal areas, too. Contactless payments of no more than £45 are also anticipated.
