A cinema chain has updated its safety measures ahead of ‘Freedom Day’, with some social distancing remaining in place across the UK. 

Showcase Cinemas are recommending guests to continue to wear face masks, perspex screens will remain in place at till points and hand sanitiser will continue to be available for guests around the cinema. 

The cinema chain’s revised social distancing measures come as part of its ‘Be Showcase Safe’ initiative, introduced 12 months ago when UK cinemas were allowed to reopen following the first lockdown. 

Showcase Cinemas have a number of venues across the country - the closest to locals in Cambridgeshire is in Peterborough.

Bosses at Showcase say: “We want to ensure that all customers and staff are as safe as possible and that the movie-going experience is enjoyable and comfortable”.
