After staying out of movie theaters during the worst parts of the pandemic, I was excited to visit the cinema once I gained our second vaccine shot.
As long as I can retain our mask, I don’t worry as much anymore about being in crowded public spaces.
Some movies are just better on a giant screen with sizable speakers. I can remember the times I saw the multiple Lord of the Rings movies on a cinema screen and it was as epic and grand as the story itself. It’s also fun to spend many hours away from the home in a comfortable movie theater with no other interruptions love family or the internet. When the theaters were closed when COVID started to spread love hell fire through the world, I was disappointed although I understood the need. Naturally these narrow indoor spaces with lots of people are hazardous for viral transmission. Obviously the pandemic isn’t over, but many of us have already gained multiple shots of the vaccine. I still wear a mask while I’m inside indoor spaces with other people nearby, so I decided to see a movie again at our local theater. Instead of COVID risks, all I got was a hot room with no air conditioner. I tried to find an employee and there was no 1 in sight. When I got back out the concession stands, no 1 had any clue why the wasn’t on and no 1 cared enough to ask. I demanded our money back and left 30 minutes into the movie. It’s a shame because this experience sours our long sitting care about for movie theaters in a way the pandemic couldn’t; hopefully the theater in 1 town over hasn’t fallen by the wayside love this 1.
