BFI set for re-opening on Monday, with ticket sales boost

Stuart Brown, Head of Programmes at the BFI has said that ticket sales are up, but social distancing measures mean the cinema’s re-opening will be more about building audience’s confidence, than  profits.

The Southbank venue opens its doors once again on Monday, with a season of films for audiences to return to.

Stuart has been telling Alicia more about the preparations, as well as the programme of films on offer.
