Despite some movie theaters reopening overseas, COVID-19 measures do not specify yet when cinemas will open their doors again in the UK. Cinema First has announced a program to engage audiences to return to the pictures through an exhibition holding around 450 diverse films for different ages and demographics.

Therefore, in spite of the lack of new releases due to the pandemic, the UK has settled for this program to activate the sector and allow cinemagoers to enjoy the great experience of watching a film on the big screen – after three months having to watch them on the smaller one.
In fact, a nationwide Film Distributor’s Association (FDA) audience survey by Metrix-Lab has specified that three out of four regular UK cinemagoers are excited to see their favorite theaters reopen, either to watch new productions or those they already love.
