Odeon, the AMC Entertainment Holdings-owned cinemas operator, said all sessions pre-booked online will be refunded automatically, according to a statement published on Odeon’s website on Tuesday.

Cineworld confirmed in an emailed statement the closure of their cinemas in the State from Tuesday and in the UK from Wednesday.
