Following government guidelines, ODEON and Cineworld cinemas are closed until further notice.
A statement said the decision was made in light of the current coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
ODEON says those who have pre-booked tickets online, will have their payment refunded automatically. Limitless membership payments will be paused until their cinemas reopen.
