Cineworld has delayed the reopening of all of its cinemas until July 31, the company has announced.

A statement from the cinema chain, which was due to reopen Swindon's two cinemas on July 10, said: "In line with recent changes to upcoming film release dates, we have made the decision to move our re-opening date to July 31.

"We hope that we will be able to re-open the doors of all Cineworld cinemas across the UK and Ireland at that time, subject to UK government restrictions.

"With the on-going pandemic, this new date remains subject to final confirmation.

"We know how much you’ve been missing the cinema and we are excited to welcome you back to Cineworld soon.

"With great films ahead, including Mulan, Tenet, Proxima, A Quiet Place Part II, No Time To Die and many more, we can’t wait to be back."

It comes after Christopher Nolan's blockbuster Tenet pushed its release date to August 12 after originally being scheduled for July 10 and then July 31.
