Empire Cinemas has reopened its Ipswich site, premiering a new all-action blockbuster.
The UK’s largest independently owned cinema chain, today announced it will be opening the majority of its estate from this week, in accordance with the UK Cinema Association and UK government updated guidelines.
The Ipswich cinema opened its doors earlier this week and will screen Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated TENET along with a number of all-time classics and recent favourites back on the big screen.
The cinema group has outlined detailed social distancing measures in place at each site.
The new measures include clear one-way signage throughout, reduced capacity within the cinemas and amended film screening times to help reduce the number of customers entering or exiting simultaneously.
