Cinemas have re-opened across England, along with indoor spaces at cafes, restaurants and bars.

That means days out and trips with the family are finally back on the cards, which is good news for movie lovers who haven't been able to watch the latest releases at a cinema for months.

It's been a tough year so far for cinemas thanks to lockdown, but the easing of restriction will hopefully bring a welcome boost to the industry.

New releases include Peter Rabbit 2, featuring the voice of James Corden, and Spiral: From The Book Of Saw, starring Chris Rock.

And film fans can also look forward to the release of the highly anticipated live action Disney movie Cruella, which hits screens in the UK on May 28.

Here at LancsLive, we've put together a list of all of the key cinemas in Lancashire, including what times they're open, and what films are on, as well as how to book.

Warner Bros has announced its entire slate of 2021 films, including anticipated blockbuster Dune, will arrive on the HBO Max streaming service at the same time as in cinemas in the US.

Disney will also launch a number of films on its streaming service Disney+ on the same day as cinema releases, including Marvel film Black Widow, villain origin story Cruella and Dwayne Johnson’s new movie Jungle Cruise.

However, the release of likely box office hits such as Bond film No Time To Die, Top Gun: Maverick and Fast And Furious 9 have all been delayed so they can be shown only in cinemas.

You'll need to keep an eye on your local cinema's listings for the latest information.

Covid rules

Most cinemas across the country have introduced new measures to keep them Covid-secure and safe for staff and customers.

Among the changes are limiting ticket sales for screenings, which includes keeping spaces between different parties for social distancing reasons.

Where possible showtimes are staggered to reduce the chance of long queues.

Some cinemas have reduced their food menu, or it may be pre-packaged.

There will also be enhanced cleaning routines at all cinemas, from from hand sanitiser stations to frequent deep hygiene checks.

Don’t forget your mask, either, as these will be mandatory (unless you’re exempt) inside the venue.
