A statement from Cineworld:
We will be closing all Cineworld cinemas across the UK from tomorrow (Wednesday, 18 March) until further notice. This decision was made in the light of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and recent UK government advice, which the company has been carefully monitoring and following.
We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of our employees and guests. We deeply value our movie-loving customers and their health and wellbeing is our number one priority during this difficult time. We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible to enjoy a full slate of film releases.
You will be able to get updates on the status of our cinemas via the Cineworld mobile app and online at cineworld.com.
We sincerely wish good health for you and your families during these uncertain times.
The Cineworld Team
