Yesterday, the government announced a number of new public health measures referring to when the likes of retail, hospitality, cultural centres and more would be reopening in Ireland.

The fate of cinemas in Ireland was also unveiled.

While initially, cinemas were given a June 7th reopening date, this then appeared to be backtracked.

The gov.ie website currently reads that "preparation for the safe reopening of cinemas and theatres in June subject to public health advice."

The change on the website did not go unnoticed.

With all this in mind, it's safe to interpret that cinemas will nonetheless reopen this June at some point.

Cinemas will thus be open on time to show such blockbusters as 'Black Widow' and 'Fast & Furious 9'.

Other movies that have been announced to open in cinemas in Ireland include Oscar-winning features 'Nomadland' and 'Another Round'.

Cinemagoers can also expect the likes of 'Here are the Young Men'; the wonderful 'Supernova'; and the if-you-absolutely-must 'Wild Mountain Thyme' to also show on the big screen.

Other much anticipated cinema showings will include musical 'In the Heights' and horror-thriller 'A Quiet Place Part II.' Families can look forward to 'Peter Rabbit 2'.
