"Not viable" to reopen Cineworld this month

Cineworld has confirmed it will be reopening its branches across England next week - but it's not such good news for Jersey.

The island's only cinema has been closed since 17 March 2020 due to covid.

It was hoped that it could reopen last summer and then later in the year, but government restrictions and financial struggles prevented it from happening. 

Today, as it was announced that Cineworlds across England would be reopening from 17 May, Jersey's branch confirmed that this would not be the case locally.

"Unfortunately, due to current government restrictions in Jersey, Cineworld will not be able to re-open there at present as it is not viable for us to operate," Cineworld Jersey wrote on Facebook.

"We apologise for the inconvenience but look forward to re-opening the cinema for our valued customers when restrictions are eased, which is currently anticipated to happen from June 14."

That whole area needs demolishing, hopefully the asking for ideas will be heard, and not developed by overseas firm, with no interest or understanding of island life. We'll use it, so we better be heard, as someone sat behind a desk for all their life, ain't going to cut the mustard.
