Cineworld will delay its re-opening at branches across the country following the lockdown.
After being given the go-ahead by the government to re-open, Cineworld has announced it is pushing back the date it will re-open.
Cineworld operates cinemas in Birmingham, on Broad Street, as well as Solihull.
But these complexes will not now re-open until July 31, having initially been given a proposed re-opening date of July 10.
Mooky Greidinger, Cineworld CEO, said: “Movie fans around the world continue to be excited by the strong slate of summer films ahead, including Tenet, Mulan, A Quiet Place Part II, Unhinged, The Broken Hearts Gallery, Bill & Ted Face The Music, Greenland and Antebellum, as well as a special re-release of Christopher Nolan’s Inception on IMAX.
“Cineworld looks forward to welcoming these moviegoers back to our cinemas next month and believes that they will once again be immersed in the timeless theatrical experience they know and love.”
It comes as Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming blockbuster Tenet was delayed by a fortnight until late-July too.
Odeon, meanwhile, intends to re-open its Broadway Plaza and New Street cinemas next month.
The chain is announcing it will begin reopening cinemas from Saturday 4 July, with additional health and safety measures in place, including socially distanced seating and contactless transactions.
Ten ODEON cinemas across the UK will be the first to open their doors, including ODEON Luxe Birmingham Broadway Plaza. Another 88 are planned to follow suit by the end of July.
