A spokesperson said: "In line with recent adjustments to the schedule of upcoming movie releases, Cineworld will re-open its cinemas in the United Kingdom starting Friday July 31, subject to final clarifications and confirmation in relation to government Covid-19 restrictions". In a statement, the company attributed the move to shifts for release date to Christopher Nolan's Tenet (now due 12 August) and Disney's Mulan (now due 21 August).

Cineworld has put back its plans to reopen all of its cinemas in the United Kingdom and Ireland, including the one in Haverhill, until July 31. "With the ongoing pandemic, this new date remains subject to final confirmation".

The cinema chain originally said they would be re-opening their doors on Friday July 10th.

A cinema giant which has chains across Kent has delayed its reopening date.

The company had previously expected to start reopening cinemas, which include Regal Cinemas, on July 10.

NY is among U.S. states yet to allow cinemas to reopen.

But a number of important markets, such as Los Angeles and NY, have not yet given the go-ahead.

Both AMC and Cineworld have outlined plans for new safety, hygiene and cleaning protocols on their premises.
