The chain - which has three cinemas across the county in Rochester, Ashford and Dover - says it is implementing a range of safety measures to allow film fans to return to its venues.

Social distancing measures will be put in place across all areas within its cinemas, with an updated booking system that allows friends and family to sit together while ensuring a safe distance between customers from different households.

Film start and end times will also be staggered to reduce crowds in foyers and corridors, while additional cleaning will be carried out between films.

Speaking last month when tentative plans for reopening were first raised, a spokesman for the chain said: "Cineworld is excited by the great movie line up to follow the reopening of cinemas, starting with the highly-anticipated new Chris Nolan movie Tenet and immediately after that with Mulan, a new Disney adventure movie.

"Cineworld, as always, greatly believes in the theatrical experience and is fully committed to be the best place to watch a movie."
