Have you heard that movie theaters are opening back up!?

According to CNN Business, “The world's largest movie theater chain reopened more than 100 US theaters on August 20, and in order to commemorate its centennial, AMC offered "movies in 2020 at 1920 prices" on opening day.” 

That's 15 cents a ticket!

Unfortunately, as great as it sounds to watch a great movie on the big screen after months of isolation - like Christopher Nolan's thriller "Tenet", which hit theaters on September 3 ( -

the reality is that “movie going” as we know it has changed in many ways.

Instead of your usual buttered popcorn, casual chatter, kids laughing, and crowds mingling after a great movie premier, AMC Covid-19 requirements now include social distancing, limited capacity, and masks the entire time unless you are eating or drinking. ( I mean, that sounds fun, right?
