Despite the fact that there are certainly still beautiful movies in theaters and movie theaters, the courage of movie fans is taking a toll a bit after Black Widow, No Time to Die, and Dune recently moved into 2021. Is there still any reason to shut the doors?
Of course there is always a chance that the government will shut down all cinemas in the Netherlands. If not, chains like Pathé and Vue can also lock the doors themselves. The first signal is already in place with the closure of the large Cineworld / Regal Cinema chain with several movie theaters in the US and UK.
A good sign that movie theaters aren’t closing their doors so quickly is that Pathé is still recording reasonable numbers. Since its re-opening in June, around 2 million visitors have attended shows in the series. It’s also possible that Vue and Kinepolis are doing reasonably well, and definitely a lot less than they would under normal conditions.
Does Gal Gadot bring hope?
The show is also limited to small movies with here and there also a lot of popcorn entertainment. Really big movies are still limited in the 2020 calendar and the biggest seems to be the DC movie Wonder Woman 1984 And the Murder on the Orient Express-continuation Death on the Nile By chance they both are with actress Gal Gadot.
On the plus side, cinemas have implemented important procedures, so look safe in front of the silver screen.
