First movie back after Covid shutdowns?

Well, it happened. i took the plunge. i had a 2 tix credit from Fandango and though it is coming out in a few days, digitally, i saw a matinee of Spider-Man: No Way Home! a handful of us there, all spread apart. rented screen. i'm not saying this is going to start again, but i wanted to see SM and theater only way to do it. only second movie i've seen twice in a row (Shaun of the Dead being first). we just hopped back in bc i wanted to take it in again and get things i might have missed. even stayed for both end credit sequences again. what a great movie. so emotional. i think i was more emotional the second time. they made the complicated, very simple. i have some reservations, but best of trilogy in my opinion.

anyway, i have no plans of going any time soon again, but this was a start.

So, what was your first movie back?

First one was a local theater showing Wonder Woman. That was actually when the pandemic was pretty new (like July of 2020), but my girlfriend and I were the only ones at the show.

Wonder Woman 2017? The first part? Because Wonder Woman 1984 came out December 2020.

I saw Tenet after the first shutdown and then went back for Dune. Since then I watched 7 more movies in the theater. I'm pretty much back to normal.

Re: First movie back after Covid shutdowns?

Mine is broken up into two parts:

2020: When some theaters re-opened with limited capacity:

Train to Busan presents: Peninsula Yeah that was my 1st one back when the pandemic was still raging and there was no vaccines.

Then theaters closed again in November 2020.

2021: When theaters re-opened in March 2021, also with limited capacity

Godzilla vs Kong


and they have stayed open since.

Unhinged in 8/2020 after the first shutdown. Promising Young Woman in 1/2021 after the second shutdown. During the second shutdown I traveled out of state to see WW1984 in the theater.

It’s not a big chain theater and every so often they’ll do runs of older films.

Impractical Jokers before the shutdown, Halloween Kills post. But I might go to 1-2 movies a year as it is, so not out of the norm for me.

Tenet was the first time with the family but I think I saw Scott Pilgrim at the Dolby Cinema the week before, IIRC.

Re: First movie back after Covid shutdowns?

I think the last movie before the pandemic was Sonic the Hedgehog.

First one back was Tenet. I've probably seen 25-30 since then. Only thing preventing me from seeing more has been lack of showtimes and quality releases. Miraculously I'm still here to talk about it.

Re: First movie back after Covid shutdowns?

First one during the pandemic was Tenet shortly before theaters here closed again, then I went back for Godzilla vs Kong months later, then started going regularly again with A Quiet Place 2.

This was my first movie theater experience since the hilarious Bad Boys for Life almost 2 years to the day (3/20).

Bond was gonna be my first, but chickened out, thus fandango credits.

Re: First movie back after Covid shutdowns?

Last movie in a theater prior to COVID was "The Gentlemen" (early February 2020). I had planned on seeing "The Invisible Man" on it's second or third weekend of release and all the theaters in my area closed. First time back in theaters was "A Quiet Place Part II" on May 30, 2021. Subsequent films after that were "Jungle Cruise", "Free Guy", "The Night House", "Shang-Chi", "No Time to Die", "The Last Duel", "Spencer", "Nightmare Alley", "Licorice Pizza" and "Parallel Mothers".

Re: First movie back after Covid shutdowns?

Now that I think about it, The Invisible Man was the last film I watched before COVID -- it was also the last film I watched at my local ArcLight before they shutdown and subsequently went out of business. The other ones were from my AMC theater.
