I guess it's good that they will be putting people back to work. But unless Hollyweird actually starts to make some decent movies again, and learns to shut their lie-beral mouths constantly putting down everything I believe in, I won't be visiting any of their theaters!!!

If I'm not there, start without me. I haven't been to a theater in over a decade, and rarely went during the years prior to that when I could get free tickets. The quality of movies is slop, as is the politics of the participants who I will not support financially. Bad remakes, explosions and poor acting are now the norm. No thank you.

Glad to hear this. But the one closest to me, which was my theater of choice for years (stadium seating, great sound, and big screens) is unfortunately boarded up.

Who cares? I haven't been to a movies theater for decades. I was renting movies from Redbox, but there hasn't been anything worth watching for months and months. If there was a really good movie coming out and I could only watch it in a theater, I would only go if I could bring my own popcorn.

Nice gesture but don't be surprised if your small audiences consist of a few bored kids who were dropped off so their parents could have a few hours of peace and quiet. I haven't seen a decent movie since the Harry Potter series and coincidentally, those were not controlled by hollywood.

A number of theaters have been open here in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area for months, and my wife and I have gone to support the local businesses and see films on the big screen. But the only new movie we've seen is "Nomadland" (very good, but very depressing.) Mostly, we've seen revivals of classics like "The Maltese Falcon," "The Birds" and "Lawrence of Arabia." It's sad to go to a theatre on Saturday night and see there are only a couple of dozen people there, but I wonder if it's really because of COVID (restaurants and stores are very crowded here) and not just that all the current movies suck.

Major left-leaning U.S. press outlets are largely avoiding mention of President Joe Biden's repeated stumbles as he boarded Air Force One, while many foreign publications are devoting prominent coverage to the incident. As of Friday afternoon, the homepages of MSNBC, CBS News, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and New York Times had no mention of Biden's stumbling incident earlier in the day at Joint Base Andrews. The news blackout was not strictly partisan, with the homepage of right-leaning One America News Network also omitting any mention of Biden's repeated tripping.
