Vue and ODEON cinemas in Preston and South Ribble have closed until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A text to Vue Preston employees, sent at 10.59am today and seen by Blog Preston, read:

“We will not be opening our UK and Ireland cinemas to the public from today until further notice. Unless you are a manager rostered for work today, please do not go to work. We will keep all our staff updated.”

The Vue Preston employee who received the text said they “haven’t been told fully yet” what will happen about pay.

A statement on the Odeon website says: “Following government guidelines ODEON cinemas are closed until further notice.”
