Denial: Is it too late for movie theatres?

In a recent article with IndieWire by Tom Breuggemann and Dana Harris- Bridson, the level in which the global pandemic has impacted movie theatres. COVID-19 has been a destructive force that has impacted countless businesses. This became even real on October 5th as the Cineworld/ Regal chairman announced the shutdown of U. K and U. S. A theatres, blaming distributors for not releasing more films.

The release of Tenet was both brave and risky, yet highly successful. Since then, more and more films have shifted their release dates repeatedly. NATO recently published an appeal asking people to send letters to Congress to get needed aid to movie theaters.

Movie Theaters all over the world are now facing the harsh realities that COVID-19 has presented them with.

Hopefully, the world will see fewer shifts being made in release dates, and more bold releases like we did with Tenet.
