    Hope they don’t go anywhere anytime soon.
    I'm the opposite. I hate going to the theater for a number of reasons. At home, if my lower back is bothering me, I have a chair I know is comfortable and I can just pause the movie and lie down. I can pause it and use the restroom. I can shut it off and go to sleep. And all of this without the hassle of getting to the theater and home again. Oh, and snacks don't cost more than the movie at home.

    But, that said, once this is over with, I think the theaters that survive this situation will do just fine. There may be a slump or time to recover but they will. Of course, everything becomes more unlikely the longer this goes on.

    Other factors are how many theaters are left in business and how many people have jobs to afford to buy a ticket.
    I like going to the movies. Apart from the cinematography, acoustics and atmosphere. I find that I concentrate better and don't have the temptation to get up or turn it off it it even gets slightly boring. I remember making it a point to see a few films in theaters for that very reason. Also the theater near my house has reasonable prices, so I don't mind going frequently. Theaters just provide a better immersive experience.

    I don't really think so. I think when this is all done and over people will want to get out of their houses.

    Yes I saw the other day where calls to suicide prevention hotlines are skyrocketing during this lockdown. People will be desperate to get back to normal.

    Things probably aren't going back to normal anytime soon I've seen any were from 6 months to 3 years one DR was saying 10 years so the real question is can they survive that long?

    China looking to hollywood to restart the movie chains there asking for the big blockbusters to rerelease.

    Hollywood hurting said yes.

    Due to this all four avengers films, avatar, inception, wondering earth, intersteller and studio ghibili's spirited away will battle each other at the china box office!

    This could give Hollywood a much needed boost.
    It also means the battle between endgame and avatar is back and avator could beat endgame to take back first place or endgame could stop it!

    Also spirited away was first in japan for a decade before your name beat it could jump up in the world wide charts also.

    I know I won't be going to a theater for at least a year, but I honestly only went maybe a handful of times a year. There are really only certain types of movies that require theatrical releases... the blockbuster types with heavy special effects or some kids movies.

    I personally think the theater experience to be overrated. I prefer to watch movies from home as I don't have to deal with obnoxious assholes. I only go to theaters for movies I really want to see ASAP. Otherwise I wait for streaming.

    That's a very good point. I'm in grocery so I'm still working but had two days off and was jonesing to get out of the house today. I think the restaurants that survive along with the theaters that survive will be flooded with more people than ever once they feel this is reasonably over with. The fact that it might happen again to some degree will only make them want to get out in the world while they can.

    Which will only make it "happen again" sooner.

    I think even the health care experts agree that the lockdowns are going to come in waves. It's just not possible to keep people confined to their homes for 12-18 months. You'd literally risk a catastrophic breakdown of society.

    If only there had been some way to have be warned early, prepare for this and minimize the threat. *shrugs*
