Why? Most people I know are not about to go to a movie theater any time soon.

The lockdowns have devastated the economy. Who knows how many deaths this has already caused and is going to cause? One thing for sure, they've caused a lot of suffering and ballooned the national debt.

That would be bad. Awful movies released by these studios only make things worse

When Ali McGraw said the line, "Love means never having to say you're sorry," the man seated in front of me in the theatre guffawed loudly and said, "She's never been married." (Love Story movie)

How is travelling on a train safer or a 10 hour flight? Bring back the drive-in-movies.

I don't know about other countries, but here in the US, the prices of going to the theater have gotten so ridiculous, I swore them off a few years ago. If they go under, it's no more than they deserve. About 3 years ago, I took my son to watch a movie in 3D before he and his mom went to Indonesia for 3 months, and it was a $50 trip for 2 tickets, a bucket of popcorn, 1 water and 1 soda. I feel sorry for folks that have a big family to take to the movies a few times a year, jeez. Almost have to save up for it and treat it like a vacation.
