For those who want to move their previously arranged tickets, they must contact the box office of their local cinema, though at present this could be difficult.
Many cinemas are currently closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, after many films had their release dates delayed and some even opted to release their films in other formats.
As a result, fans should try and contact their cinemas over the phone or online, as many will not be open to allowing punters inside.

He had been absent from the stage for almost a decade, and this series of concerts broke all box office records and completely re-energised the career of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
The feature-length documentary features performances of Love Me Tender, Blue Suede Shoes, Heartbreak Hotel and Suspicious Minds, among others.
The movie also shows the legend preparing for an emotional career comeback, with fans who travelled from all over the world for the history-making event.
The film, as well as being rereleased, has also been remastered.
Fans should know the King suffered in his career near the end, as he had some time where he was no longer as well loved in the public eye.
He had a child with his wife, Priscilla, from whom he became estranged, after which he struggled to make it back onto the stage, until his incredible Vegas comeback.
However this comeback was not as long-lived as many would have hoped, as he died not long after returning to the stage.
