    Well, that‘s probably positive for you, but doesn’t happen in other markets.
    Onward, for example, is not even available for digital purchase (buy&rent), whereas it has been on Disney+ in the US for 2 months now.

    As much as I'm looking forward to it, I just don't think it's a good move to release Tenet this summer or maybe even this year. Same with Mulan which I'm also looking forward to.
    All the plans I read for reopening theaters just seem so silly. Just like the music concert plan. Too many risks and it creates so much extra work for the theater workers who, to my knowledge, aren't getting raises or anything. With grocery stores those are obviously necessary and even restaurants/bars. Movie theaters as much as I love seeing movies in them, aren't a need.

    EDIT: Because even from a business sense, I can see any movie being released being "sold out" and hard to get into, but not because so many people are watching them but because each theater has limited capacity. Even if you use every screening room with the spaced out seats. I'm sure the actual of seats watching the movie are less than they were before

    EDIT 2: Sorry if this has been discussed before. I haven't been that active

    My regular theater is a Cinemark, so... guess I’m not seeing movies for awhile.

    The last thing the world needs is for Amazon to get even bigger, if the theatre industry can't survive then I say bring on the VOD someday releases. We all know that is where we will eventually end up, sooner or later.

    Ok then. Then scroll along.
    The title is the author's opinion on what they're doing. No need to quote me and clog my notifications for something you could easily ignore.

    The title is clearly that ever present movie nerd snark/sarcasm. It's very clear from the title that it's not meant to be taken literally. Again pretty self explanatory.

    It will be a real shame if cinema doesn't recover from this. I want to support them but I also don't want to take risks with the health of my friends, family and ..myself. :csad:

    100% agree.
    But as pointed out, I would not be surprised if Amazon or even Netflix snatches a few theaters up.

    Someone mentioned a while ago, but I'm surprised drive ins haven't had a bit of a surge. Never been to one, but I'd go maybe not for like TENET, but some movie where I don't care that much about the sound quality

    It would be great if they could step in. People would probably say a bit less then about the evil streaming companies ruining cinema lol. Those are 2 companies who have benefited from the lockdowns too.

    I would go to a drive in but I have no idea if they even have any anywhere near me. I don't know if they're common or even exist here.

    I don't know what Tenet would be like for sound but seeing Inception without sound would be a very different experience. I put some serious wedge into my sound system when that film came out and watched it every day for a couple of months, partly because it's one of my favourite modern films but also because it really got the most out of my system.

    If I can't see Tenet in a theater, I won't see it at all. That's the only way I'm watching it the first time.

    I disagree. I’m against monopolies, but if I still would like to have a theater experience and not get hammered with overpriced drink and ticket prices, I welcome Amazon buying AMC. Given what they’ve done with Whole Foods, thus far, they’ll likely try to ease some of the inflation we’ve seen with concession stands and the inconsistent quality of AMC theaters.

    The number of times over my life I’ve seen people cough/sneeze in their hands or in the air is unsettling. I won’t be going to Cinemark anytime soon.

    Yeah it was bad enough before the virus, but now? Yeesh.

    I just saw Outbreak for the first time too. That scene in the movie theater? Yikes

    I’ve watched customers sneeze into their hand then put the same hand straight onto their shopping cart, sneeze straight into the air without even trying to catch it, or cough all over the stuff they’re carrying up to register for me to ring out.
