With the announcement that cinemas are to reopen in Scotland from 15th July, we want to let you know that we are currently reviewing the best way to restart screenings, with the safety of our volunteers, and our audiences, as our priority.
As soon as we all are ready we will let you know how we will open and what safeguarding measures we have in place
and we look forward to seeing you back along to view some cracking films in our lovely cinema again.
Meantime thanks as ever for your support.
Following the UK Government announcement on Monday 16 March 2020 to step up measures to fight the Coronavirus COVID-19. pandemic, reinforced by guidance from both the Scottish Government and UK Theatre/the Society of London Theatre, Cromarty and Resolis Film Society Trustees have taken the decision to temporarily close the Cromarty Cinema. This decision was taken on Tuesday 17 March 2020 and is effective immediately.
At this stage, we do not know how long the closure and suspension of our film showings will last.
We will continue to follow Government advice as it is issued.
This is an incredibly complex and fast-moving situation and it is with a heavy heart that we have taken this decision but the safety of all volunteers and audiences is our number one priority.
Please note that although we have only recently opened the Cinema, in partnership with Eden Court, the Film Society and Cinema is well positioned to cope with a temporary closure. We have no debt and our recurring monthly costs are minimal so when the Coronavirus has run its course we will be able to restart our screenings.
The support and response we have had from volunteers and audiences in the six weeks that we have been open has been fantastic and means everything to us. We looking forward to welcoming you all back to our Cinema, in happier times, once this is behind us all.
In the meantime, stay safe.
(Trustees of the Cromarty and Resolis Film Society)
