Everyman closes UK cinemas after coronavirus outbreak

LONDON, March 17 (Reuters) - British cinema chain Everyman Media Group has closed its venues until further notice, the AIM-listed company said on Tuesday, following the latest guidance from the government on responding to the coronavirus outbreak.

Everyman is a relatively small player in the sector operating 33 cinemas, with 110 screens, according to the latest figures from the company.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday shut down social life in Britain and ordered the most vulnerable to isolate for 12 weeks, ramping up the battle against a coronavirus outbreak just as it accelerates towards its peak.
