Cineworld bosses have announced that all 127 of their cinemas, including the Aspects venue, will reopen to the public in May.

The chain, which closed all its sites a year ago as a result of the global covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, is hopeful that restrictions will be lifted by May.

The earliest they could reopen, according to the Government’s roadmap, is 17 May.

Dozens of big-budget blockbusters missed out on a cinematic release in 2020 including Black Widow, Death on the Nile, Dune, The King’s Man, Top Gun 2 and the much-anticipated Bond movie, No Time To Die.

In some cases, the delay to release dates has had an impact on planned sequels, with both Mission Impossible 7 and 8 pushed back to November 2021 and 2022 respectively.

Vue cinemas have yet to confirm their reopening date, but it’s likely that it will also be in mid-May.
