Have you been to the cinema since they re-opened?


8th October 2020

THIS week, Cineworld, Britain’s largest cinema chain, announced that it is closing its doors until the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

They hope to reopen next year when more new films are released. Since cinemas reopened in July there have only been a small number of film releases.

Cineworld’s boss Mooky Greidinger, blamed the closure on a lack of new films due for release this year. Mr Greidinger described the company’s situation like being “a grocery store with no food”.

The new James Bond film, No Time To Die, is the latest film to be delayed until 2021. Other cinema chains have been hit by the pandemic. Odeon Cinemas has said that a quarter of its cinemas will be closed on weekdays from now on.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson encouraged Brits to go out and enjoy cinemas, saying that “cinemas do now have ways of letting their shows go on in a COVID-secure way, and I’d encourage people to go out to the cinema, enjoy themselves and support those businesses.”

I went to the cinema when they reopened but I think I would prefer to go when life gets back to normality as wearing a mask and having to social distance takes away some of the fun of being at the cinema as you can't truly relax.

I really want to but I just haven’t got the chance yet
I am comfortable at home 🏠 so I don’t mind it that much

I have and nothing much has changed. It's lovely to experience the cinema atmosphere again :) However, I understand the the masks do cause a slight inconvenience for a lot of people (including myself) but I try to ignore it and just immerse myself in the film.

I haven't been yet, but I'm looking forward to lots of films that couldn't come out and hopefully going to see them!

Too worried about sitting near other people.
