No films being shown at King's Lynn cinema due to coronavirus
A popular Lynn cinema has taken the decision to close its doors with immediate effect in response to the coronavirus.
The Majestic Cinema announced that last night (Tuesday, March 17) was the final time the building will be open to the public for the foreseeable future.
This followed the news that all shows at the Corn Exchange and St George's Guildhall have been postponed or cancelled, until at least Friday, April 3.
Posting on social media, the Majestic stated the decision was taken in light of recent government advice.
It said: "While this is a difficult decision, the health and safety of our customers and staff is our number one priority.
"We all love this building and this will be a tough time for all of us that work here. We will come back when we can and continue to be the Majestic you know and love.
"Please take care of yourselves and one another in this difficult time and we’ll see you all soon."
Signs had been posted on the front doors of the Majestic yesterday informing the public that a live screening of Fidelio, scheduled for last night, had been cancelled.
This was before the ensuing decision to cancel all film screenings at the site.
The Majestic is a Grade II listed building with three screens. The independent cinema was first opened to the public in May 1928.
