The last day the Savoy opened was on Christmas Eve last year - a break of 144 days - more than four months ago

A spokesman for the Savoy said: "We are excited to announce that our cinema will be reopening on May 17. It's finally time to enjoy movies like you're supposed to, on the big screen.

"We’ve got some fantastic new releases out in the up coming weeks so keep an eye out."

On show will be horror film Spiral: From the Book of Saw (18), Those Who Wish Me Dead (15) starring Angelina Jolie, sequel Peter Rabbit 2 (U) , animation Raya and the Last Dragon (PG) , cartoon capers with Tom and Jerry (PG) action blockbusters Godzilla Vs Kong (12A) and Mortal Kombat (15) and Academy Award winner Nomadland (12A).

Savoy will be implementing procedures within the cinema to limit the spread of the coronavirus with social distancing measures in place across the cinema and screens to ensure a safe distance between different households are maintained in the auditorium.

People will be asked to wear a face covering to be worn at all times, except when eating and drinking in the auditorium.

Alongside the existing cleaning routine, additional antibacterial spray and sanitiser will be used throughout the cinema concentrating on 'high touch' areas and all screens will be sprayed with an anti-viral solution after every show.

Movie watchers will also be encouraged to make advance bookings using the website but where advance booking is not possible, people are being encouraged to use contactless payment. Cinema showing times have also been staggered so that people mix as little as possible.
