COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS
We are pleased to welcome you back to the Morton Majestic but are aware that, even though the Government has removed virtually all restrictions, there remains a real risk of infection.
Everyone has been given the opportunity to receive a vaccination against Covid and our expectation is that everyone who attends will be double vaccinated with the exception of under 18s and medical exemptions.
We will also take steps to protect everyone who attends our films, including restricting capacity to 60, setting out the seating to ensure a measure of social distancing and our preference is for advance booking and payment for tickets.
It is also important that you help us to ensure everyone’s safety and we have therefore decided that, to protect all of our volunteer staff and fellow cinema goers, a number of measures will remain in place when visiting us.
- Please do not attend if you are displaying any of the symptoms associated with Covid-19.
- Check in using the QR code at the main entrance. If you do not have the app on your phone please let us have your contact details.
- Use the hand sanitiser at the main entrance.
- Contact us if you test positive for Covid-19 within 7 days of attending a film.
- Please wear a face covering at all times in the hall unless exempt or eating and drinking.
- Thank you for your understanding.

THE GOOD LIAR

A witty, atmospheric and stirring drama set on a remote Scottish island. The refugee experience is poignantly observed as a group of new arrivals await the results of their asylum claims.

NO TIME TO DIE
Daniel Craig’s final film as the diva of British intelligence is an epic barnstormer.
James Bond is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving active service. However, his peace is short-lived when an old CIA friend shows up and asks for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond on the trail of a mysterious villain who’s armed with a dangerous new technology.

THE FRENCH DISPATCH
Supper Special – Booking essential
Another thought provoking masterpiece by director Wes Anderson ( Grand Budapest Hotel ) and his regular team of actors including Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton.
A love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th-century French city that brings to life a collection of stories published in “The French Dispatch”.
It has everything that we’ve come to expect from Wes Anderson-carefully crafted aesthetics, perfect colour palettes, and intricate tableaux of actors.
As sad and thoughtful and funny as anything Anderson has ever made, a sparkling gem in the illustrious career of a film-maker who refuses to be pinned down, even when everyone thinks they have him figured out.
Thursday 21st April – 7.15 for 7.30pm start

Dune is visually stunning, and will transport you to other worlds.
