VUE cinema in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre has joined the long list of closures due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Tim Richards, CEO of Vue International, said: “Since the first news of the COVID-19 outbreak we have been doing everything we can to provide a high quality, enjoyable and safe big screen experience for our customers.

“However in line with the UK Government’s latest public health advice we will be closing all our 91 cinemas in the UK & Ireland from today, March 17, until further notice.

“As you would expect, we are also doing our part by putting employment policies in place so that our staff are protected and are not penalised financially.”




Mr Richards wished all of his customers and employees well during ‘these difficult times’ and added that he looks forward to welcoming everyone back in the future.

Cineworld and Odeon have also closed all cinemas across the UK.
