How Coronavirus Affects The UK Cinema Schedule


Every major UK film release delayed due to coronavirus concerns, and when you can see them!

Article Published on 19.03.2020

Cinema was set for one of its busiest periods of the year before the COVID-19 pandemic brought blockbuster season to a halt, delaying the release of many hotly-anticipated films. As more and more cinemas across the UK sadly but sensibly shut their doors, we want to bring some good news that the majority of these are delays and not cancellations, and the films will be released at a later date. While many are postponed indefinitely, studios have already found a new home for some of these exciting films. We still don't have an end date in sight, but what we know for certain is that we're going to be in for a bumper season of blockbusters when the films are finally released and cinemas reopen. Here's a list of the upcoming major UK theatrical releases affected by the coronavirus, and when you can see them!
