Feel-good films are back on at the Harlequin cinema


Film-goers can once again enjoy the Waller Studio, the cinema at the Harlequin Theatre & Cinema in Redhill.

The cinema reopened its doors on Friday 17 July, having closed during the coronavirus lockdown.

Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, which owns the Harlequin, says measures to keep the venue safe for all include distanced seating, designated routes around the venue, rigorous cleaning regimes, and hand sanitising stations.

Films over the coming weeks include recent releases, feel-good classics, family films and play screenings.

All tickets are just £5 until the end of July, with critical workers able to enjoy free tickets in July and £5 tickets for all of August.

Ahead of the reopening, Cllr Alex Horwood, executive member for wellbeing and intervention, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming the public back to the Waller Studio. Watching films on the big screen is a wonderful form of entertainment that we know has been sorely missed by our customers.

“We have taken extreme care to make the experience safe and enjoyable, so our customers can sit back and relax.

“We can’t wait to welcome you back to The Harlequin.”

The Harlequin website has details of the films on offer and more information on the safety measures being taken.
