  • I book my session online on the mobile app or the website.
  • I must wear a mask in my cinema and during the whole session.
  • Two seats to the left and right of each group of spectators are automatically blocked.

The Gaumont Disney Village reopened its doors like all the cinemas in France on Monday 22nd June. Our team went on site to see what health measures have been put in place.

Health measures in place:

  • Hydroalcoholic gel is available at the entrance of the cinema

  • Plexiglass windows have been installed to protect the staff
A sign posted on a seat, reminding people not to use that seat.

Regarding the cleaning and ventilation of the cinema:

  • The staff regularly disinfects the surfaces touched by spectators 
  • The rooms are ventilated between each screening

If you feel peckish, it is always possible to buy popcorn in buckets. Other bag packagings are also available. 

It should be noted that similar social distancing markings have been installed in Disney Village.

Disney and me, it's a long love story. I fell into it as a child and never got out. From movies to theme parks, through the history of the Walt Disney Company, to comic books, everything fascinates me.
