I would pay $30 to see movies right now. {nm}   cinebello on Mar 31, 15:58

You can pay $20 to see a theatrical movie right now at home. {nm}   Antibody on Mar 31, 16:23

But I won't. You can say it all you want, it's not the same. {nm}   PhoneHome on Mar 31, 16:43

Not sure what you're trying to say. You're willing to break social distancing and get sick to be in a theater right now. {nm}   Antibody on Mar 31, 17:12

+1 Me also. {nm}   VictorY on Apr 01, 10:42

49% of people with a hangover say they'll never do that again. . . {nm}   Abraxas on Mar 31, 16:16

Exactly! Worthless survey in the midst of the fear. How would a theater be any worse than a concert, a crowded subway, etc. They'll be back {nm}   PhoneHome on Mar 31, 16:56

They also asked about concerts; 56% would take anywhere from “a few months” to “possibly never” for them to return {nm}   Antibody on Mar 31, 17:03

This is kind of the mirror universe twin to that survey a few days before "cancel everything" started taking hold    notfabio on Mar 31, 17:06

They likely have at least 2 months. IMAX didn't think China was going to return to near normal until June/July and that was before ...   notfabio on Mar 31, 16:54

It sounds to me like its time to reinvent the drive-in or other outdoor movie/concert venues.    albrown on Mar 31, 20:45
