The nation’s largest cinema chain, ODEON, is excited to announce it will begin reopening cinemas from Saturday 4 July, with new health and safety measures in place. Ten ODEON cinemas in England will be the first to open, with a further 88 UK cinemas set to reopen by 16 July.


To ensure guests can enjoy the ODEON safer cinema experience in the most controlled environment, ODEON has worked with the UK Cinema Association and UK Government to introduce enhanced health and safety measures to each site. These safety measures include:  


Safer Buying
Contactless experience, including booking online and contactless ticket checks in cinema and contactless till payments for purchasing food and drinks
Range of ‘Grab & Go’ pre-packaged food and drinks including a bottled drink, Butterkist popcorn and a bag of sweets to improve speed of service

A Safer Space: 
-          Limited seats on sale for each show and guaranteed unoccupied seats between guests to meet social distancing requirements, whilst enabling family groups and social bubbles to sit together

-          Staggered show start times to reduce queues, with safe queuing measures in place such as floor markings and cinema host support

-          Newly serviced air conditioning that ensures fresh air is delivered into all screens


Enhanced cleaning by well-trained teams
More frequent cleaning routines on all high contact areas of the cinema guest journey
Guest sanitiser stations offering complimentary sanitising gels and wipes
Teams diligently trained on safety and hygiene measures, equipped with PPE, including face coverings and gloves
