Coming home out of the film TENET right now. Proud to say I think I understood about 60% of it. Was scared in the street on the way back to see people and cars might be running backwards.

We went to see TENET. I think a second viewing may
enhance the movie experience, kind of like first viewing
you are on one side of the movie ( the normal flow of
time ) and on the second one, well, you already know
what happened and you can anticipate it like some of the
protagonists.

Serenity - A friend had a movie birthday party and she wanted to watch Serenity.  It was still a fun movie, and it was fun to watch it on the big screen again...

Made my way back to an indoor movie theater for the first time since December '19, and took my eldest daughter to see:

THE SHINING

Finally saw it on the big screen for the first time ever.  It was a blast to see, and the soundtrack really popped in a theater setting, after decades of watching it on TV.

Felt perfectly fine and safe, with masks & social distancing.  Probably won't go back as often as we used to (if theater chains even survive this pandemic), but it was nice to get back to the theaters at least one more time.

Similar to you, Shaun, my local theater showed A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, which I'd never seen on the big screen.  It was fun to see it that way for sure! 

There were probably a dozen people there, scattered around the theater. I felt safe but it's also pretty clear that a theater can't really survive with a dozen people in the theaters.

A few weeks ago we went to see The New Mutants in the theater. We all enjoyed it despite the usual not being faithful to the comics stuff.

The theater could seat about 100 people and there were about 20 in there, mostly spread out with people that came together sitting together with sizable gaps between the various groups. No issues regarding safety whatsoever. Tickets were bought online in advance, nobody had any direct contact with us, even at the concession stand (gotta have that popcorn, lol) and we had a great time being back in the theater for the first time in over six months. 

We're planning to go again as soon as something worth seeing pops up.

This thread just made me sad. I hadn't really thought about the last movie I saw on the big screen... Looking back it's very likely that Parasite was the last film I saw in the theater.
