Like many of you, we’re just hearing that London, parts of Essex and Herts will be moved into the highest tier of government COVID-19 restrictions from early on Wednesday morning.

Sadly, this will mean that the many cinemas that had reopened will be told to close again and those that had been waiting to reopen will have to wait a while longer. It remains government policy to review the COVID tiers in two weeks’ time.

The BBC reports Tier 3 restrictions as follows:

  • You cannot mix indoors, in private gardens or in most outdoor venues, except with your household or bubble
  • You can meet in a group of up to six in other outdoor spaces, such as parks, beaches or countryside
  • Shops, gyms and personal care services (such as hairdressing) can stay open
  • Bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants must stay closed, except for delivery and takeaway
  • Sports fans cannot attend events in stadiums
  • Indoor entertainment venues – such as bowling alleys and cinemas – must stay closed
  • People are advised not to travel to and from tier three areas

We’ll be updating our A-Z cinema reopening dates as soon as we get that new information. Until then, stay safe.
