We’ve Missed You!
Commenting on the announcement that Newcastle has been placed in Tier 3, Simon Drysdale, Interim Chief Executive Tyneside Cinema said;
“We are really sad to hear this news as we were ready to re-open Tyneside Cinema very soon. A huge amount of preparatory work has been done and all staff are focused on ensuring that everything in the cinema is safe for customers and our team.
We are also very disappointed as we had a brilliant programme in place in the run up to Christmas, including all the traditional favourites.
However we will wait, and hope, that after Dec 16, when the rules are reviewed, we may be able to open. We will continue to share updates on our plans as and when possible.
As Cinema UK has said, there hasn’t been a single instance of Covid transmission in a cinema in the UK, yet other, arguably riskier, services are being allowed to re-open in Tier 3. That said we are all committed to re-opening Tyneside Cinema as soon as we can”
