Maidenhead's ODEON Luxe will be reopening on May 17th subject to the Government's easing of restrictions.
The cinema chain announced today it would be reopening 120 of its UK and Ireland branches in just under two weeks time.
A statement on Twitter said: "The joy of cinema is back! We're thrilled to be opening our big screens across the UK from 17th May with tickets on sale soon."
There will be a small number of new film releases fans will be able to view this year, including Peter Rabbit 2: The Runway, Fast and Furious 9, Marvel's Black Widow, Top Gun: Maverick and the highly anticipated James Bond film: No Time to Die.
A statement added: "In addition to these new blockbusters, and recent releases, we will also be screening a huge selection of modern and classic titles across different themes, including indie, feel good and Diverse cinema.
"We cannot wait to immerse ourselves back in the community, providing a much-loved pastime, an entertaining experience and a chance to unplug from reality."
ODEON has worked with the UK Cinema Association and the Government to introduce new safety measures on each side, which include:
