Showcase Cinemas becomes the first UK chain to reopen some of its multiplexes this weekend – and it’s kicking things off with a £5 offer.
From Saturday, cinemas in England are finally allowed to reopen their doors under UK government guidance, although signs so far are that the majority of them won’t be doing so. In fact, the only chain at the moment we can find that has confirmed it’ll be back open this weekend are Showcase Cinema sites.
Even then, it doesn’t look like all of its England-based multiplexes will be open, and going through the booking system on its website we count nine for certain that will be.
As for what to actually watch, there’s one new release available, with Black Water: Abyss playing from this Saturday. Other than that, the chain has lined up a choice of classic movies, which it’s charging £5 apiece to watch. Films on the list include:
Back To The Future
Guardians Of The Galaxy
Fast & Furious 7
Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone
La La Land
Paw Patrol: Ready, Race, Rescue
Spider-Man: Far From Home
Terminator 2: Judgment Day
The Dark Knight trilogy
The Sound Of Music
You can find the full list of available films here.
Showcase will reopen further sites from Friday July 10th. And we’ll leave you with the video it’s put together about its reopening…
