The unfolding of the Coronavirus pandemic has brought with it all kinds of concerns – for the personal health and safety of our loved ones, and the most vulnerable people in our society. And while delaying the summer’s biggest movies and ensuring that cinemas nationwide are closed in order to slow the spread of Covid-19 is a necessary measure, it’s sure to throw picturehouses across the UK into an uncertain future.

That’s why Empire has launched Celebrate Our Cinemas – a campaign to support our favourite film venues through this difficult time. Read on for full coverage of the campaign, including information on how to help your local cinema in its time of need.
