Thank you to everyone for their swift cooperation with ACT Health’s new mask requirements last week.
As you may have heard, earlier today it was announced that the existing mandate will be lifted on Saturday 10 July. This means that masks will still be mandatory at this Thursday’s and Friday’s screenings but won't be required from Saturday’s screening onwards.
Although they are no longer mandatory, the official health advice is that the wearing of masks is still strongly encouraged in spaces where physical distancing is not possible, such as in crowded indoor venues like cinemas. Therefore, as we have been doing since screenings resumed in December, we will continue to offer free masks from the front desk to anyone who wishes to use one. You are also encouraged to bring your own and use it if you wish.
Beyond that, it's business as usual this week for the penultimate week of screenings for the season – featuring Robin Wright's directorial debut, one of the big hits of this year's French Film Festival, and Jason Statham's long-awaited re-teaming with director Guy Ritchie.
And stay tuned for the big reveal of our new July to October programme... coming sooner than you think!
