Please note, unfortunately, due to the introduction of Tier 4 measures in Berkshire, the remaining Luna Cinema dates for Christmas 2020 have been cancelled.
The below message is from Luna Cinema to their customers:
Following the UK Government’s announcement on 19th December, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the screenings at our drive in cinema sites at Ascot Racecourse and Copthall Stadium as both are located in areas now classed as Tier Four. Please note that the Luna Drive In Cinema at the Birmingham NEC is unaffected by these changes in the regulations and will continue as normal.
While the government’s guidance is unclear in stating “some outdoor attractions may remain open in tier four”, we feel there is insufficient detail to make the decision to ask our audience to go against the general 'stay at home' messaging. Although we genuinely believe that our Covid-19 Secure drive in cinema is the ideal form of safe, outdoor event for these socially distanced times, we feel a moral obligation to protect our audiences and ensure we are encouraging the following of the official guidance. We are so sorry for any inconvenience caused by this change, but hope our audiences will understand we are working as best we can with these last minute alterations in our operating guidance.
We will be in contact by email with all bookers - if you have tickets for Ascot or Copthall please check your inbox (and spam folder in case).
As a small family business this forced closure has come as a devastating blow and although we will of course refund your ticket if you so wish, if you would consider holding on to your ticket we would be incredibly grateful.
This email is our guarantee to exchange your ticket for a future drive-in or outdoor cinema screening of your choice in 2021.
As a thank you, anyone who keeps their ticket to use in 2021 will receive a complimentary upgrade to a premium ticket (where capacity allows).
If you are kind enough to support us by retaining your ticket for next year, all you need to do is contact us next year with details of the screening you would like to attend and we will transfer your booking and apply the upgrade.
Once again, we are so sorry to have to cancel your screening, this is not the end to 2020 we were hoping for, but we can't wait to welcome you in 2021. Cinema under the stars WILL be back, and it WILL be wonderful.
You can contact us on [email protected], but please bear in mind that we are receiving a high volume of queries at the moment, so it might take us a little longer than usual to get back to you.
Thank you for your continued understanding and support, and we wish you all as merry a Christmas as possible.
