COVID-19 on (lack of/Postponed) Movie Releases in Theatres

Obviously, COVID-19 has seemed to stop everyone in their tracks, even postponing blockbusters including No Time to Die (James Bond) and Black Widow. What does this mean for the theatres? Will the pushing back of highly desired films start the habit of staying at home and opting for an online streaming service (ex. Netflix/Hulu)? Will movie theatres be an item of the past? How have movie theatre sales been affected by past trauma?

  • This is a great question. I'm curious how this will affect the culture of cinema as a whole if the experience of going to the movies is taken away completely. – sophiawestover 4 years ago
