There's a few major differences between a cinema and a Pub I can think off the top of my head.
In a cinema you wont see much chatting, singing or shouting during the movie. Drinking Alcohol reduces peoples inhibitions and responsibility by default. Its not a popular fact to acknowledge, but there's a reason why we are encouraged not to do dangerous things when drinking alcohol. It is far easier to manage social distancing in cinemas aswell as people do not move around much. I have never seen a cinema toilet as busy as a toilet from a pub. And when people get Tipsey they are far more likely to be less compliant and reasonable when asked to be compliant.
In terms of why pubs are opening in Europe and not here, that's a different topic.

Of those who were fully vaccinated who caught the Delta variant, 50 died, data from Public Health England that was published on Friday indicated.
The figure represents almost half of the total 117 deaths associated with the variant in the UK, where Delta now represents most cases.
But experts said this does not undermine what we know about the efficacy of the vaccines, given that the deaths come from age groups at higher risk and represent a tiny proportion of the 92,029 Delta cases analyzed.
Eight people under the age of 50 died after getting the Delta variant, the data showed. None was fully vaccinated, while two had received one dose of the vaccine.https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.businessinsider.com/vaccinated-among-delta-deaths-but-older-relatively-few-uk-data-2021-6%3famp
50 deaths out of 92k cases isnt enough to shut down so much.

Are the clowns trying to encourage foreign travel in July with the vaccine passport, go on my holidays and have a drink in the pub or go into the North for a drink! Absolute farce.

The UK had 3 deaths yesterday, and 11 deaths previous to that.Given we have a population 13x less, this is the equivalent of not even 1 death here - at best, a pair of arms.
The UK are 2-3 weeks ahead of us, so goes the saying, so why the the next 2-weeks considered that important here? They are consumed with the Indian variant.
The entire ruling by NPHET makes no sense at all.

Anyone who goes out and votes in the next election should really ask why they even bother. Politics in this country is in dire straits, a huge shake up needs to happen and get some actual leadership back into our political parties. What's happening at the moment in this country is crazy and not one person from any of the main parties even questioning it. Stuck in never ending lockdown with the debt piling up, every other country opening up and nobody in politics or mainstream media really putting the pressure on and asking why??
I honestly don't understand it at all, but the worst of it is there isn't one electable party that I'd look at and think could do better.

Whatever about pubs, restaurants can be safer and easier to manage social distancing so why should they be discriminated against here.
