ODEON in Barons Quay will be relaunching on Monday.

The cinema chain says it will be unlocking its doors at the vast majority of its sites – including Northwich – on the first day that leisure venues can legally reopen as part of the government's roadmap.

Carol Welch, managing director of Odeon Cinemas Group UK and Ireland, said: “I am delighted to be welcoming guests back to experience the joy of the big screen at Odeon on May 17.

"We've all missed the magic that the cinema brings to movie watching, and we know our guests are excited about coming back. We are sure they will enjoy the great new offers that make their movie experiences better than ever.

"I would like to say a huge thank you to all our Odeon team members for their amazing energy and commitment over the last 12 months which has allowed us to get back to what we do best – welcoming guests back to experience movies in the best possible way.”
