Staffordshire and Cheshire cinemas closed due to coronavirus pandemic



Cinemas in North Staffordshire and South Cheshire have confirmed they are closed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The Odeon cinemas on Festival Park in Stoke-on-Trent, Crewe and Stafford are all closed with immediate effect.

In a statement the company said:  “Following government guidelines ODEON cinemas are closed until further notice.

“If you have pre-booked tickets online, these will be refunded automatically.

“For any specific questions, please contact our guest services centre.”

Cineworld and Picturehouse has also announced the closure of all its cinemas across the UK starting from Wednesday, March 18, and in Ireland starting on Tuesday until further notice – including their cinema at the Hive in Hanley

A statement said the decision was made in light of the current coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak and recent UK government advice.

Cineworld Group CEO, Mooky Greidinger said: “At Cineworld and Picturehouse we are committed to providing safe and healthy environments for our employees and guests and have therefore made the difficult decision to close our cinemas in UK and Ireland until further notice.

“We deeply value our cinema-loving customers and have no doubt we will be serving everyone again as soon as possible with a full slate of Hollywood blockbusters and the best of independent films and content.”

Vue, who have a cinema in Newcastle-under-Lyme, are say whether their cinemas will be closed.
