COVID Precautions

Last updated:

It is still mandatory to wear face coverings in cinemas, although there are exemptions for some people. It is reasonable to remove a face covering when you need to eat and drink, but you must replace your face covering once you have finished eating and drinking. If you wear a face visor/shield you are asked to also wear a face covering, as a visor is not considered to offer sufficient protection. You must bring your own face covering to GFT. All staff will be wearing masks. From 1st April, all Monday to Thursday matinees before 5pm have capacity set to 50% maximum. All other screenings have full, unlimited seating capacity (unless otherwise stated). We recommend buying tickets online as this guarantees you will get a ticket. All tickets booked online or over the phone can be collected from Box Office on arrival at the cinema. Box Office opens daily, 30 minutes before the first film, and closes 15 minutes after the start time of the last film in the evening. Tickets are on a first come, first served basis and we would recommend purchasing tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. Hand sanitiser stations are available for customers to use throughout GFT. You will be asked to use these when entering GFT. Please use these as/when needed while visiting GFT. There is now no requirement for businesses to collect contact details for Test and Protect. However contact details are mandatory for any advance bookings that you make so we can contact you in the event of any changes or cancellations. Our programme will be updated on a monthly basis with new screenings. We highly recommend signing up for our weekly enewsletterto keep up to date with all new film programming information: Please email to let us know if you require any assistance with access including use of the lift for your visit to Cinema 1. If you require a wheelchair space and carer ticket, please email with your contact details including telephone number so we can call you back to help with your booking. GFT accepts the CEA card for customers who require a carer ticket to visit the cinema, subject to availability. Please send any questions or concerns to (this email is monitored Monday to Friday only, from 10am to 6pm).
