Lancashire movie goers rejoice – Vue has announced its reopening cinemas this month as lockdown restrictions ease.

Vue is opening all of its 88 sites across the UK on May 17, the first day when the Government’s roadmap allows indoor venues to reopen in England.

This includes cinemas in Preston, Blackburn, Lancaster, Accrington, Cleveleys and Southport – with tickets available to pre-book now.

Screenings will include Peter Rabbit 2, The Unholy, The Conjuring Part II and Hey Duggee.

And film buffs starved of the big screen are in for a treat with three years’ worth of new releases coming to the big screen in the next 18 months.

These include the new James Bond film No Time To Die, which has been delayed on numerous occasions due to the lockdown, Top Gun: Maverick, Minions: Rise of the Gru and Fast & Furious 9.

Football fans will be delighted that Vue is screening both the Champions League and Europa League finals, while the long-awaited Sir Alex Ferguson documentary, Sir Alex: Never Give In, will also be available.

Cinema-goers will have to adhere to social distancing measures and Government guidelines to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Tanwir Hussain, General Manager of Vue Accrington, said: “In a year marked by restrictions on our daily lives, the importance of escapism has never been stronger.

“After the best part of a year at home, we know that families in Accrington and entertainment fans are craving safe out-of-home experiences like never before – cinema provides that unique experience of being able to truly immerse yourself in a great story.”
