Now those in England can see a movie at the chain from July 10.

A statement from the company read: “We are excited to announce that we are planning to reopen Cineworld Cinemas across England on 10th July 2020.

“The opening date is subject to final clarifications and confirmation in regards to UK government restrictions, with dates to follow for our cinemas in Scotland, Wales and Ireland.”

The government guidelines state cinemas would open on July 4 at the earliest.

Measures at the cinema to encourage social distancing include a new seat map so film viewers can sit apart from strangers.

Family and friends will be able to sit in groups however.

There will also be hand sanitiser stations and ramped up cleaning measures.

Tickets will be able to be booked in advance.

After a successful trial, Burger King opened a further 72 branches throughout the country.

The retailer hopes to have 68 percent of restaurants operating again by the end of June, meaning there would be 350 branches open.

Katie Evans, Marketing Director at Burger King UK, said: “We are so pleased to be able to open more restaurants this week and slowly but surely get back to ‘normal’, ensuring all safety measures are in place.”

There will be a reduced menu at the restaurants due to new kitchen rules.

Costa has reopened 131 branches in the UK, too. 

A message posted on Costa’s Twitter yesterday said: “We have a further 131 stores opening today for takeaway, taking us up to 658.

“Setting up the stores to operate safely for our team members and customers takes time so thank you for your patience.”

While not all branches have opened, the retailer is well on it’s way to reopening all of its 2,700 locations.
