There is reduced capacity seating spaces in the auditorium, with empty seats between group bookings, a one way system, and temperature checks for all staff, volunteers and customers.

Everyone has to wear a mask.

Saffron Screen’s business manager, Jenny Hemsley said: “The safety of our customers, staff and volunteers is a priority.

“We want everyone to fall back in love with the big screen experience and we are very grateful to the community for their continued support throughout this crisis.
