August 26th is forever away in a pandemic, and that film's already been delayed twice (was supposed to come out weeks ago). I guarantee that even if it is released in theatres, it'll come with a home streaming option. There are way too many important US markets that won't get theatre clearance in five weeks' time.

Fairly certain people won't be able to sit through a 2 hour movie without taking their masks off.
When i work some 6 hour shifts, i dont take my break or mask off once. Extremely easy to do, let alone a measly 2 hours lol

If they put up movie from China, Korea & Japan I might consider going beside that Hollywood have shut down in the time being nothing new to watch.

Exactly. But I'm just saying there will be those who can't even have it on for 5 minutes.

On one hand theatres are usually fairly empty during daytime showings and will probably be even more empty now...so distancing may not even be an issue if going early. On the other hand there is no new movies to see lol.
$2.99 for a potential Rona exposure...
Im rethinking my excitement at the theatres opening. Everyone makes some good points here...esp the cleaning protocols by teenagers. That has always been my concern, how can i trust the person responsible for cleaning is doing a good enough job. Eventually complacecy sets in...do something over and over again, its inevitable.
Oh man..decisions.

Hmmm... going to the theatre during a highly contagious pandemic when you can get the same content in the safety of your own home... thanks, but no thanks.

That's not what it says. It says "select US cities"... Movie theatres haven't reopened in the majority of major US cities, including New York. AMC Theatres has pushed back their reopening date multiple times to coincide with the launch of "Tenet," but with the way US cases are going (63,000 new cases yesterday), there's almost a virtual certainty that won't be in September.

I love the movies so much that I am taking the risk to go. In fact I have already been twice to my local independent theatre. I think we shouldn't judge each other on whether we go to the movies right now or not. Everyone is an adult and should be able to decide for themselves what they deem worth the risk and what not. For me, I would never go to a fitness studio right now. It's inside, people are breathing heavily, masks not required during workout and so many surfaces! But I don't judge those that deem fitness studios worth the risk.

Can we just take a moment to mourn the fact that the new James Bond "No Time To Die" is sitting in purgatory right now?

"Tenet will absolutely not be a streaming-first title, AT&T CEO says" - you really think a Nolan film of this magnitude and budget would be released on streaming?

I don't care what that article says, nor do I care what Christopher Nolan wants. That movie was filmed in May of last year when the world was a very different place. If the studio wants to make him happy, it won't be arriving in theatres until 2021. And if it does arrive this year, it might be exclusively in theatres for a week at most until it's turned over to streaming. There's just no way they see the dollars the other titles mentioned in that article saw without taking into account the world we're living in right now. Even when AMC opens, for instance, it'll be exactly like what we're seeing here with 50 heads (at most) in each theatre. You would need to screen the film in every available room in every open theatre to warrant that title's release in the US. It just won't happen. My gut instinct is that they'll push it to 2021, because there definitely won't be an Oscars show next year with all the titles that have proactively delayed their releases, and Nolan loves his awards.

Seems relatively safe to me. The ability to stay distanced from everyone in a basically empty theatre is much better than going to any bars or restaurants for example.

Kind of tempted but yeah...first I need to know how they are going to seat people. Any distancjng measures or people sitting side by side ? It doesn't matter how cheap it is, or their popcorn, they would literally have to pay me to go at this point.

Saying no film will release than trying to dish out "it has been delayed twice followed by "home streaming option" that literally has not been brought up once in the media is back peddling on your original claim that nothing will release.

The fact is that markets that have been heavily impacted like the film industry have NO CHOICE but to launch their films before a vaccine. Studios and companies have dished out millions upon millions to produce these IPs.

Films will release and studios will find a way to maximize earnings in creative ways. Home streaming is a horrible idea and the industry would not dare to launch a newly released movie in that format due to the fact that it opens up massive pirating concerns and possibilities.

The "seat reservation map" feature should be required when buying tickets. That way you can see exactly how full the theatre would be...how spaced out the seating would be.

It is when you book via the Cineplex website. I know this because I was going to purchase every second seat in the theatre just to have the theatre to myself for ~$125. That was until I realized it's still a waste of money and there is a limit on ticket purchases per account.
