Cinemas are unaffected by the 6 person limit – our update following the latest Government announcement

We’ve been receiving a lot of queries about how the latest Government announcement impacts us as a cinema. We are pleased to confirm that we are able to continue as we have planned, more on this below.
We have been advised by the UK Cinema Association that “at this time that they do not apply to cinemas which were exempt from the previous ’30 person’ limit on gatherings”.
Regarding our Private Hires we have been told that these can continue to go ahead so long as “no group of more than six can sit together and normal social distancing applies”.
We are still able to take Private Hire bookings because households are socially distanced from other households from the moment they arrive at our cinema.
Our policy hasn’t changed because we were adhering to these rules already; households (of up to 6 people) must arrive, sit and exit separately.
We hope this clears things up!
