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.

I haven’t been to the cinema because it’s still too high risk! COVID-19 hasn’t gone yet and even if it’s gone down slightly if we act like it’s completely gone and it’s fine now the cases will rise. I vote stay safe at home! Follow the COVID-19 laws and be sensible for the elderly generation!

It also won’t be the same wearing a mask and having to keep a distance from everyone else will get a bit annoying- I’d rather do it relaxing at home

No, but I would love to. I don't know if I am wrong; there are not very many films that are out. Still, it would be good fun and I miss the cinema

And only now do I realise that I can't even remember the last time I went to a cinema.

I haven’t had the time too

No because you can download the film at home and staying at home is safer than watching the film in a compact area. Also, downloading them at home saves all the hassle.
