Movie theatres are thriving
Movie theatres are thriving yet once again despite the ongoing pandemic.
People’s need for a sense of normalcy is being met by high profile movie titles on the big screen, something you cannot replicate with online streaming.
Though online streaming has become quite popular due to the pandemic, more people have proven the desire to get out again.
Restaurants, movie theatres, and shopping centers are all packed today.
More people are beginning to feel things are getting back to normal with mask mandates being lifted in some areas of the country too.
While online streaming is here to stay, so are the movie theatres.
The theatrical experience is hard to follow
Films like ‘The Batman’ and ‘Spider-Man No Way Home’ make the theatrical experience a hard act to follow.
Especially when comparing it to online streaming at home.
The movie industry is booming again, and the numbers say it all.
‘Spider-Man No Way Home’ is on track to make more than $800 million to-date, currently at $786 million.
‘The Batman’ is anticipated to continue generating millions leading up to next weekend.
While the finance world continues to criticize the survival of the movie theatre industry, it’s safe to say cinemas aren’t leaving.
What’s your take on the movie theatre industry?
