REMINDER! 1.5m at the cinema
Cinemas opened again from 1 June in NL, but there are still special measures in place due to the current coronavirus crisis. Things to know:
- Don’t go if you or anyone in your household has any covid symptoms.
- You must reserve a ticket in advance, you can’t walk in to a cinema and buy a ticket just before a showing (but you can book online, up to 5 minutes before the start of a screening, and you can book tickets at a box office if it’s well in advance.)
- No-show Cineville reservations will be cancelled 5m before screenings.
- Come to the cinema alone or in the company of people from your household (max. 5 people).
- Arrive on time, but no earlier than 15m before the start of your film.
- No admissions after the film has started.
- Go to the toilet before you arrive.
- In the screening, you’re expected to leave two seats empty between you and others but people from the same household can sit next to each other. Every second row of seats is left unoccupied.
- Follow new signage within the venues to manage flows of people safely.
- So, screenings will get booked up quicker than normal so in many cases you’ll need to book well in advance.
- New film programming is pretty limited as many film distributors are withholding film releases until its is more profitable to screen, eg until they can pack more people into screenings. Expect lots of reruns.
