ODEON have announced that its cinema in Northwich will finally re-open later this month.

The Barons Quay complex has been closed due to the Covid19 pandemic since March, but will throw open its doors to movie-goers on Tuesday, August 25.

Several safety measures have been put in place to ensure the experience complies with government guidance, including limiting the number of seats available for each film and guaranteeing unoccupied seats between parties to meet social distancing requirements.

Odeon have also said they will be staggering show start times to reduce queues, with floor markings throughout the venue. The online booking of tickets is recommended, while there will be a range of pre-packaged food and drinks, which can be purchased using contactless till payments.

With cleanliness now paramount, cinema staff will also be carrying out more frequent and thorough cleaning routines, while complimentary hand sanitising stations will be situated at allocated points throughout the building.

Customers will also be required to wear face coverings when visiting and all staff have been trained on new health and safety procedures and will be wearing face coverings and gloves.
