A community that runs a cinema in a Moray hall is “disappointed” after axing a season of scheduled films that were set to be screened as part of their reopening.
The Universal Hall in Findhorn will remain closed until further clarity is gathered about wearing face coverings in cinemas across Scotland.
This comes after the UK Government announced that people are required to wear face coverings in cinemas.
The hall was gearing up to screen Jane Austen’s beloved comedy Emma, And Then We Danced and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.
The auditorium had been restructured for social distancing with the introduction of a one way entry system and hand sanitisers installed.
However the uncertainty surrounding the rules about wearing face coverings in cinemas, resulted in the hall deciding to pull the plug on reopening for the time being.
Findhorn’s David Till said: “The Universal Hall Promotions team are sorry to announce that, following the recent UK Government Cinema Regulations announcement, we are postponing our current Film Season, planned for August, until further clarity can be gained around the wearing of face masks in cinemas in Scotland.
“Please note that anyone who has purchased a ticket for one of the three upcoming films can receive a refund in full if you request it from the online ticket seller wegottickets.com.”
