Default US Movie Theaters Reopening (August 2020)

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/ne...eaters-1284554

Quote:
Alamo Drafthouse is also instituting "buffer" seat protocol in the U.S., while mega-Canadian exhibitor Cineplex is slashing capacity by 50 percent.
Even as Hollywood studios pull back major tentpoles from release amid a coronavirus pandemic, many theater chains haven't made the decision to temporarily shutter stateside.

But Friday, the circuits took action. AMC Theatres, the largest chain stateside, as well as Regal Cinemas and Cineplex, the Canadian exhibition giant, all said that they are cutting seating capacity by half in all locations in the U.S. and Canada. Cinemark is also reducing capacity in California, and is likely to follow suit in other locales, akin to AMC and Regal, according to insiders.

I'm OK with the idea of Disney+ having a pay-per-view style section for brand new movies instead of putting them all in theaters, I really love going to the theater - but having this option for some films is a good idea I think. Heck, I'd pay $25 to see the new Mulan at home!

They'd just keep playing movies that were already released. There might even be some re-releases.

All it takes is one. We should probably just shut down everything until we stop all the viruses.

I'd like to see a selection of classic films shown, and at multiple showtimes per day instead of at 7:00 PM. I'd gladly roll out to see movies like Back To The Future, Raiders Of The Lost Ark or Ghostbusters on the big screen with an audience (even a quarter-full one ). Hell, a reissue of GB would be ideal considering the new movie (hopefully) opening this summer. Plus, this'd keep theaters open during a trying time for the industry and keep giving a steady paycheck to worried employees who must be shitting bricks right now.

the movie studios are going to take a major hit...the summer box office is always the most profitable time of year...wouldn't surprise me to see higher ticket prices after this to make up for lost income

The problem people don't realise is that if we basically shut everything down over silly fears, when do we open them back up and when/how will employees get paid or why should employers foot the bill of absent employees?

The entire thing is a mess.

Since there are no new movies coming out for several weeks, they might as well close them down starting Thursday and reopen them next time there's a wide release movie (currently Trolls World Tour on 4/10).

This is never going to work! For every 1 person who pays to rent it, there will be 9 people who pirate it. Because the minute a 1080p stream is online, it WILL be ripped and shared worldwide.

Doubt it, a lot of people are going to lose jobs, or at least a lot of money, because of this virus and governments are desperately trying to avoid a financial crisis. Trying to get audiences back after something like that would be the worst time to raise prices.

This is the first Friday in many months I didn’t go to a movie. If Something like A Quiet Place opened I would’ve, but these weeks releases didn’t me interest me enough to go out.

Movie theatres: We're going to limit seating and distance people apart.

America: oh yeah? watch this

There is nothing silly about an outbreak of a deadly virus. This is not Hollywood and it's not a movie. It's a real life pandemic, and it's not to be taken likely. When it spreads local it's a major concern.

These are showings today, this won't start until tomorrow. I hope nobody really comes when I'm working.

Looks like CMX Cinemas is already doing it:

[Show spoiler]



So I guess this is what "sold out" showings will now look like. Cinemas seem to be active tonight. Sucks the limited seating will make it appear like theatre's are dead.

I don’t think he or anyone would object to making a legitimately scary virus into a national concern.

Half the places closing are just following suit so as not to be the odd ones out and be sued by sue-happy Americans. The economic downturn will be much scarier than the virus.

They should re-release OUTBREAK and CONTAGION to cinemas.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em! 😷

But there isn't a MUST see movie out now because most movies have been yanked. How long are they going to keep BoP, Sonic, Invisible Man and so on in the theaters ? How are they going to enforce this? Are they going to put up "out of service" covers on the spaced out chairs?

This is the DUMBEST SHIT I HAVE EVER SEEN theaters do.

Remember that scene in Outbreak where the dude coughs and the camera follows the particles around the theater?

Wouldn't it be wiser to install better air filters? If you do get infected...how do you know it didn't come from someone else in another screen?
