I haven't gone to a theaters much before the pandemic & I know that I'm missing a lot of great films the big silver screen. That was nice to see that we are getting some new films & have a bit of hope that they all those that work in the industry get back on there feet.
To me I just don't think that we may see the same level of new films that are coming out to keep them afloat for long. This level of opiumism I have now is just not good enough to think that all the theaters stay open for the long run.
Now can they really keep them open with only a few new films that are being release as of now. We may see the end of the theaters in there current forum. I do think that we may have some hope that a few of smaller theaters may have the best hope of survival in the end.
As for a long term prediction. Some of the bigger name theaters may have to down size or sell off some of the theaters that they have around the country. Now this sounds a bit stupid, but I think that it's the only way to make shore that they are still up & running for years to come.
Most of these are just me thinking on what some of these theaters need to be to stay around. If they don't do something in the next few weeks. All the theaters will be gone for good.
There is one more thing that I think that is hurting the theaters as well & it just hit me as I has typing this up. Are the many studios that starting their own streaming service. Can that be the main reason that some many theaters are going to be closing their doors for good? We may not know that real impact for a few years, but I think that it is a big part of why some theaters will be shutting down soon.
