007 is finding another time to die as the new Bond film has been delayed until 2021. With other big films such as 'Black Widow', 'Dune', and 'Wonder Woman 1984' also vacating their release dates, there are very few tentpole movies on the horizon. But there are plenty of films still to come this year... from 'The Secret Garden' and 'Soul' for all the family through to the latest Blumhouse horror, and a whole host of more select films that may not have ordinarily had a wide cinema release, we're sure there's something for everyone!
Why not take a chance on something you might not usually choose to see? Our cinema teams have found some great gems over the last few months! Octobers releases are listed below - check back soon for information on November titles. Not all films will play in all cinemas on their release date, but we'll try to get as much in as we possibly can.
The cinema industry has taken lots of steps - at great expense - to ensure we're doing all we can to keep you safe. Check out our safety procedures above and visit lovecinema.com to read more, and watch the touching new trailer.
