During the lockdown period, many Cineworlders have taken to social media to express what they miss the most about going to Cineworld.
We thought we'd round up a few of the most emotive responses, starting with this from Gary.
@cineworld is like my best friend leaving me. You were always they for me when I needed cheering up you were they for me when I needed to get out of my head space being only 10 mins away meant I could escape for 3 hours knowing you put a smile on my face i'm missing you— Gary Cox (@g14d23c) May 6, 2020
Karl says it's the loss of seasonal anticipation that's hit him the most.
You know when you get that holiday moment with a little flutter of excitement? Well just got it thinking about getting back to @cineworld— Karl (@fingerbandaged) May 6, 2020
Chrissie loves the immersive quality of formats such as 4DX - plus the option to combine them with snacks in a theatre environment.
I miss @cineworld a lot. Watching films at home is okay but nothing can bit the big screen, the loud sound, and the smell of popcorn. Also so excited for Ashford’s refurb. 4DX and Starbucks!! The light at the end of the tunnel.— Chrissie (@heyyychrissie) May 5, 2020
Jennifer says she can't wait to get back to maximising her Unlimited card.
Some Cineworlders have really gone to town to replicate what they love about the cinema. Check this out from Natasha.
Jeremy has already made a promise to himself.
When @cineworld re-opens I am going to live there!— jeremy bradley (@jeremybradley49) May 5, 2020
And Simone is hopeful that brighter things lie on the horizon.
