How Coronavirus Affects The UK Cinema Schedule


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

Article Published on 20.10.2021

Cinema was set for one of its busiest periods of the year before the COVID-19 pandemic brought blockbuster season screeching to a halt, delaying the release of many of 2020’s most-anticipated movies and sadly forcing cinemas across the UK and Ireland shutting their doors. As we enter a new year with an end to the pandemic in sight, we can finally begin to get excited about the bumper season of blockbusters we have ahead of us when things can get back to normal.

Yet, with a constantly-changing release calendar and so many films stuck in limbo or sadly moving to streaming platforms, it’s a very confusing time for cinemagoers who are eagerly awaiting the big screen experience.

With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of all the theatrical release affected by coronavirus, and when you can see them!
