Everything is uncertain these days, and the grand old-time theaters are no exception.

Hollywood Beacons in the Night
They survived the Great Depression, when tickets cost a dime. Neither earthquake nor greedy developer has been able to topple them. Over the decades, they have endured the rise of the VCR and the indignity of showing “Cats.” But the coronavirus pandemic — so far — has outmatched the remaining movie palaces of Los Angeles, at least one of which, the 93-year-old Chinese Theater, with its towering red columns and swashbuckling copper pagoda, stands as a global symbol of Hollywood.

Relax. The heat and Sun will make this magically go away soon I'm sure.

Yes! Because in the heat of the summer, people flock to air-conditioned theaters, right?

Well they are going to go somewhere when temps reach 95+...curious to see how this summer plays out! Do we just accept deaths by heat or what?

Movie theaters will eventually be a special night out. Streaming will be more popular with home theater being a must have. Wider seating less audience in theaters. Imo like the sit down restaurant model is gonna charge more due to spacing. They will have less wait staff. There may be more restaurants (as far as numbers) opening up to meet possible demand but one thing for sure is......eating out costs out will go up. Which means that going out won’t be the easy peazy “I don’t wanna cook tonight honey let’s go out” on a whim. Unless you have the disposable income going out just got more expensive.

Quite a few Hollywood Stars are acting in TV series now. Looks like they kind of know there is not going to be that many movies running in theaters in future.

Something tells me they won't be starving on their salaries. And If you're looking for someone to blame, look at Democrats, not Corona.

Default Netflix Closes Deal to Buy Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre

Not sure if this was a good deal...

Quote:
The deal gives former owner the American Cinematheque a needed financial infusion and allows it to continue to program the historic movie palace on the weekends once the coronavirus pandemic ends and cinemas are able to reopen.

Netflix, which first revealed its plan to partner with the Cinematheque and buy the theater in April 2019, will use the venue during the week for premieres, screenings and other special events.
