I dread to think of the DV% of sodium a person took take in from 2 hours of continuous movie theater popcorn.

Unhinged moves to July 31st. It will be the first new movie. And because LA and NY have not officially approved theatres to reopen, they expect Regal and AMC to delay their openings.

No. Disney wants this to be a worldwide premiere and China theatres are closed right now.

These studios are only hurting themselves by delaying. The major theater chains are not going to last very long if they can only show old movies. Better to take the gamble that you might lose money on one film than to see movie theater industry collapse and go out of business.

If nobody is going to go a new movie right now, then what happens is that both the studios lose money, and the movie chains still go under. They'd just be burning a new movie release for no good reason. If they delay the release until people are likely to show up, then it generates more revenue for both the studios and the theaters at that later time. It's not like movie studios are making new films at the moment, and already some releases have gone DTV. The longer film production is delayed, the less new content studios will have for theaters to screen when attendance actually eventually recovers.

The problem is that a lot of major cities have not approved movie theatres to reopen. Itís not the studio and theatres fault.

Without revenue from New York, LA, SF and such, you canít release these movies with no one watching. And as mentioned many times, PVOD is a money loser for many of these movies. Most refuse to pay $20 or more for only a rental.

Oh I didn't realize Chinese cinemas are still closed. We actually opened up in the US quicker (in some areas) than China?

Cinemark is now making masks mandatory.

When they and the other theatres will be able to reopen is another story.

They have dates set, but NY put theatre openings on hold indefinitely. LA has regressed and is also on hold indefinitely. Texas and Arizona are train wrecks right now.

So all of Cali has shut down all movie theaters. I’m guessing Texas will follow shortly. Let the movie postponements continue.

Just to clarify no major chain is open right now. If any are open, it's a small Indie theater.

and it's closed for 3 weeks. LA county hasn't approved theaters to reopen yet.
