Officials said the ticket booking system will help ensure social distancing throughout theaters and movie schedules will be adapted to avoid large crowds from forming. Sanitation procedures will also be enhanced at all theaters.

We are thrilled to be back and encouraged by recent surveys that show that many people have missed going to the movie theatre. With a strong slate confirmed for the coming weeks, including among others Tenet, Mulan, A Quiet Place Part II, Wonder Women 1984, Black Widow, Bond, Soul, Top Gun Maverick and many more, the entire Cineworld team remains committed to being ‘the best place to watch a movie’ .”
