Visitors arrive at Vue Cinema in Leicester Square, as coronavirus disease (COVID-19) restrictions continue to ease in London, Britain, May 17, 2021.
"We have a situation now where we're going to be having almost three years of movies in the next 12 to 18 months.
So we're looking at this extraordinary period where I believe we're going to be looking at the second golden age of cinema."
When measures eased in the summer, they reopened for a while, only to be obliged to close again months later.
"This time, I think absolutely there's an expectation this is it, and that cinema audiences will want to come back and enjoy the big screen."
