Tivoli’s silver screens are now accompanied by perspex screens.
Shane Jarrett is following the lead of a fellow theatre owner by partitioning the twin seats in his three Cambridge cinemas.
“It won’t stop Covid but I hope it will encourage people to come back and feel safe,” he said.
The screens – sourced locally – remove the need for social distancing to be so stringent.
Tivoli will have the screens in all three of its theatres, which cater for 41, 47 and 52 patrons.
Shane Jarrett opened the independent theatre, converted from a former fruit shop, in 2014 and it also features a function area which can cater for 140 people.
