MOVIE lovers in Worcester will finally be able to book seats for the big screen as Vue announces it will open in two weeks.

Following the successful re-opening of 10 sites across the UK, Vue will be re-opening its doors on Wednesday August 26, in time for one of this year’s most hotly anticipated blockbusters,Tenet.

Akeem Marere, General Manager at Vue Worcester, said: “We’re really pleased to be preparing to reopen our cinema once again and we look forward to welcoming film fans back soon.

“We’ve been working hard to ensure our site here in Worcester meets safety protocols in line with the latest government guidance.

"All safety measures will also be clearly signposted at the entrances and throughout the building, and will be in line with government and public health guidance. Customers will be required to wear a face covering during their visit, although this can be removed to consume food and drink.

"Customers will also be required to take part in the Test & Trace initiative to help keep themselves and others safe.

“However, we want film-lovers in Worcester and surrounding areas to know that the quality of our viewing experience remains unchanged and customers will continue to enjoy the best audio and picture quality in big screen entertainment, especially with the upcoming release of hotly anticipated titles such as Tenet.

"We hope film-fans are excited as us at the return of the big screen where films like this are supposed to be seen.”

Vue is bringing a number of fan-favourite films back to the big screen, including the Harry Potter series, La La Land and Star Wars.

What to expect if you visit:

  • Online booking is encouraged to make visits as contactless as possible. Tickets can be accessed on smartphones and will be scanned before entering the screen, allowing you to skip the queue.
  • Enhanced cleaning protocols and Employee PPE are in place. This includes disinfecting every screen between each screening and hand sanitiser stations available throughout venues. Staff will be equipped with PPE to protect themselves and customers.
  • Physical distancing meeting government guidelines has been built into the booking system so that customers in one booking are automatically seated apart from others.
  • Reduced touch points at venues through foyers and into screens. Contactless payments up to the value of £45 and Apple Pay and Google Pay will be accepted and encouraged at till points.
  • Staggered film times will be implemented to maintain physical distancing and reduce the number of people at any one time in foyers and corridors.
  • The team will also have two full days of extensive training ahead of reopening on these protocols. On hand will be the newly established safety team ready to welcome customers back in, explain the new procedures and answer any questions.

Vue will be screening films at Worcester from Wednesday 26 August.
