COVID-19 Update

    Author Zoe Aresti

30 March 2020 Update:

From 1 April 2020, in order to protect the future of our business and our employees, Digital Cinema Media (DCM) has implemented a temporary furlough program for some of its staff under the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

We are confident this short-term action will aid our employees and future-proof our business in the long-run as we navigate the challenges of the ever-changing COVID-19 situation.

Over the time-period affected, a small team will continue to deliver against the existing needs of our clients, with flexible options still available for advertisers. For any enquiries, please contact Karen Stacey ( and Davina Barker (

When the time comes, we have no doubt that audiences will return to experience great movies on the big screen and cinemas will be busy once more. We are confident our industry will work together and collectively bounce back from these difficult times.

We will regularly be reviewing official guidance and will provide updates where appropriate.


17 March 2020 Update:

Following ongoing Government advice around the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, most cinema sites across the UK are temporarily closing their doors.

Across the time period affected, DCM will provide advertisers with flexible options for booked campaigns. Even during these unprecedented times, we are committed to delivering for our customers and will go to every endeavour to do so. Please speak to your DCM rep to discuss the available options.

As a company, our proposition remains that we are Always Looking Forward and we are passionate about working collectively to step-forward together through these challenging times. We are dedicated to supporting our cinema partners across the country and send best wishes for continued safety and wellbeing to all at this time.  

DCM will keep its remote working protocols in place until 30 March, or until further guidance. We will continue to service the industry at this time, turning our attention to virtual ways we can bring each other together to scope out business plans for the future, while also focusing on developing systems and tools to ensure we are fully operational and up-to-speed as soon as we can get back to business as usual.

We will regularly be reviewing official guidance and will provide updates where appropriate.

Across this period, please contact Karen Stacey ( and Davina Barker (
