The Cinema industry has been hit hard with the COVID19 pandemic with a loss of tens of thousands of jobs. While Odeon and Cineworld confirmed they were closing their cinemas and laying off staff, Cleethorpes Parkway Cinema has vowed to fight back and ride through the COVID19 storm.
With the news of the latest James Bond film being delayed until 2021, it has done the cinema industry no favours. The cinema industry was hoping that the latest James Bond film would help turn their fortunes around but sadly the delay has put another nail in their coffin.
The owners of Cleethorpes Parkway Cinema have admitted that the COVID19 has made it hard for them but have said they are hanging in there by a thread.
‘We think there’s something magical about seeing an amazing film in a proper local cinema’ say Parkway owners keeping the action on a roll in Louth and Cleethorpes
Unlike some cinemas who have closed their doors for good, Cleethorpes Parkway cinema has said they have one aim and that is to ride through the storm and carry on providing an excellent service for another century.
The family-run business which has been serving the area for more than 20 years is calling on film lovers to support their local cinema during the COVID19 pandemic.
Richard Parkes, one of the sons of founder Gerald Parkes and co-director said Cleethorpes Parkway cinema will be showing brand new films as part of the BFI London Film Festival 2020.
As well as screening new films, Richard said they also plan on bringing many classics to the big screen. But that is not all. There is also talk of providing some live spooky family fun this Hallowe’en.
