Welcome Back To Studio 74… Again

Published December 2, 2020


Welcome back to Studio 74... again. After closing for a second national lockdown, Studio 74 is back with a host of festive films to get you in the Christmas spirit. ...After all, would it really be Christmas without Kermit and Miss Piggy on the big screen?

We understand that not everyone is ready to join us back in the cinema just yet, so we will continue to provide you with the best Virtual Cinema events. We hope you enjoy these, and know that we will be here for you when you do feel ready to return.We thank you all from the bottom from our hearts for your continued support and engagement with Exeter Phoenix while our doors were closed.

Like all venues, we have had to change the way we do things for the time being. We would like to share some of the extra measures we have put in place with you. Watch the video or read the measures below.

  • No mixing of households is permitted inside whilst Exeter remains in Tier 2 restrictions. Booking parties must be from one household/support bubble.
  • We have reduced the capacity in our cinema to enable socially distanced seating.
  • Floor markers are in place to enable social distancing whilst queuing and moving through the venue.
  • We have increased cleaning throughout the venue, paying particular attention to high-traffic and high-contact areas such as hand rails and doors. The cinema will be cleaned before and after every screening.
  • Hand sanitiser is available throughout the venue.
  • Staff and volunteers have been provided with detailed training and information about the new measures in place at this time. They are there to help, so do let them know if you have any questions.
  • We have had our ventilation system in the cinema inspected and maintained before reopening.
  • You must wear a face covering whilst entering/moving around the venue and in the cinema itself. You may remove your face covering to eat and drink only whilst in a designated seating area. Please be mindful that some people are unable/exempt from wearing a face covering, and the reasons for this may not be immediately apparent.
  • If you are exempt from wearing a face covering, do feel free to let our stewards know this when you arrive if it would make you feel more at ease during your visit.
  • Unfortunately we are unable to offer a takeaway food/drink service under current guidance. However, our Café Bar will be open for food and drink before your film if you would like to purchase any refreshments.

These measures are being reviewed on a regular basis and will be updated as necessary.
