Odeon cinemas announce closure of all UK sites

Odeon cinemas announce closure of all UK sites

Earlier this morning we reported that the ICA in central London was, so far, the only UK cinema site to close its doors. However, Odeon Cinemas have just announced on Twitter that they are closing all of their sites until further notice.

The brief statement says: "Following government guidelines ODEON cinemas are closed until further notice. If you have pre-booked tickets online, these will be refunded automatically. For any specific questions, please contact our Guest Services centre. We look forward to welcoming you back soon."

Odeon's announcement will no doubt put the onus on the likes of Vue and Cineworld to follow suit, but at this stage neither exhibitor has changed their stance in response to the government's press conference late yesterday afternoon.

As soon as more information regarding Odeon - or any of the other UK chains - is made available, we'll be sure to keep you updated.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
