Reading Vue, Showcase Winnersh and Everyman Wokingham Movie Listings, Hours of Operation & Covid Rules
If there’s one thing we’ve learned since national lockdowns were imposed, it’s how much we’ve taken life’s little pleasures for granted.
For many, going to the movies, buying a big bucket of popcorn, and watching a new release can be the highlight of the week.
Now that the foreclosure rules have started to be lifted, our hospitality industry is poised to take advantage of the boost to have us back on their inland sites.
From today (Monday May 17), we can finally eat inside in cafes and restaurants, drink inside in bars and pubs and go to see a movie in the cinema.
Here’s what you need to know about reopening theaters, including show times, what movies you can expect to see the rules you’ll need to follow when you’re there.
View, Oracle, Reading
With 11 screens and over 1,800 seats, Vue will undoubtedly be inundated with excited moviegoers when it opens today.
Starting at 1 p.m., you can see a mix of new and old favorite movies including Peter Rabbit 2, Spiral: From the Book of Saw, Godzilla vs Kong, and Mortal Kombat, Lord of the Rings debut Robert di Nero in Taxi Driver and many others. After.
Showcase Cinema by Lux, Winnersh, Lecture
The Showcase Cinema at Winnersh is now open – and it has no less than 14 screens.
It will also show Godzilla vs Kong, Peter Rabbit 2 and Spiral: From the Book of Saw, but some screenings are already sold out, like the Nomadland screening at 8:10 pm.
Everyman offers a different cinematic experience, with dishes from the Spielburger kitchen delivered right to you.
Everyman is open now but it’s much smaller than the theaters above.
You can see Nomadland, Minari, Judas and the Black Messiah, Sound of Metal, Peter Rabbit 2, and Spiral: From the Book of Saw today.
Which movie should you see?
There’s a good mix of movies, from kids’ movies for the whole family to spooky horrors.
Chloe Zhao’s Nomadland, a tale of a pickup truck community in the American West, swept the floor at the Oscars, winning Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress.
Spiral: From the Book of Saw is another horror in the Saw series – so expect a sadistic brain to do some really rough ‘justice’.
Minari, the story of a Korean-American family’s move to Arkansas, is another that received nods at the Oscars.
For the kids, Peter Rabbit is back and he’s taken his furry friends with him – expect mischief and hijinks galore.
Be sure to check the movie listings of your choice to make sure you don’t show up to a sold-out screening.
What Covid-19 rules are in place at the cinema?
Masks are mandatory inside the venue, so remember to remember yours when you go.
You will also need to pre-book as there will likely be a limited number of places available due to social distancing measures.
You might find that your favorite snack isn’t available – it might just be prepackaged food right now.
Session times may be staggered to reduce the number of people waiting in shared spaces.
Staff will undertake an improved cleaning routine and hand sanitizing stations should be located for your use.
