Announcement regarding COVID-19 and restrictions on gatherings. 

Due to the spread of COVID-19 in Iceland, Stockfish has decided to postpone all Industry Events, receptions and asked our international guests to stay home. What we are left with are the film screenings in Bíó Paradís which will be implementing the same precautions as other cinema houses. The cinemas will make announcements regarding these precautions and how they intend to ensure that governmental issued restrictions on gatherings of 100 people or more are followed. 

We have already limited the number of tickets to all of our screenings from Monday onward to ensure that we don’t reach 100 guests at a time. Hand sanitizer is available all around the cinema and the staff is taking special care to clean and sanitize multiple times during the evenings. We also encourage guests to leave empty seats between themselves and avoid standing or sitting close to each other. We will continue to stay attentive to any updates and recommendations from the Department of Health and make changes accordingly. 

Again, we ask that anyone who has been feeling unwell, anyone who is or is close to anyone that is at high risk to please stay in the comfort of their own home during these times.
