Cineworld has confirmed the date it will reopen its doors to film lovers across Scotland. 

The cinema chain is hoping to reopen on July, 31, finally providing the chance for cinema-goers to see much-awaited films that were postponed due to the pandemic. 

It teased its reopening with promises of great films including "Mulan, Tenet, Proxima, A Quiet Place Part II, No Time To Die and many more". 

However, the experience of visiting cinemas will change in light of the Covid-19 outbreak.

The opening date is still subject to governmental confirmation at a later date, depending on how restrictions are eased. 

Social distancing measures will be implemented across the cinemas, including distanced seating. Visitors will be able to sit with friend or families but will maintain a safe distance from other groups of customers. 

Additional sanitation has also been promised to ensure the safety of customers and staff. 

As well as stocking anti-bacterial soap in all toilets, hand sanitiser stations will be provided in all cinemas. 

Tickets will also no longer need to be physical, as the cinema chain is encouraging customers to use e-tickets via the Cineworld app.

All employees will receive specific COVID-19 training and PPE will be provided to employees where the risk assessment has deemed it necessary. 

Efforts will also be made to stagger film times to reduce customers cross paths with other customers going in or out of other screens.
