The cinema giant has 128 theatres in the UK and Ireland including in Witney and Didcot.

It is writing to Boris Johnson and the culture secretary, Oliver Dowden, to say that the industry has become “unviable” because of the decision by film studios to postpone big-budget releases.

It has been reported that up to 5,500 jobs are at risk.
