The Cineworld chain is closing. (At least temporarily.) COVID-19 did for it and thousands of people are out of work now.
I worked at a Cineworld during summer 2007. Working in a cinema is uhh I guess “average” as far as jobs go, but I really enjoyed it. Even hanging about in the lobby waiting to tear people’s tickets wasn’t that bad, because I got to watch the movie trailers. There was something about being in that poorly lit lobby hearing the beautiful music from the Atonement trailer suddenly echo through the halls which always stuck with me…
Also another time I was cleaning out a Cineworld screen and I found £15 on the floor! They said I could keep it if no-one claimed it so I did get to keep it at the end of the day. That may not seem like much but to me at that time it was HUGE.
Sigh, I hope the Cineworlds do get saved.
