Not to get too far off topic, bur what was it like going to an indoor theater with under current circumstances?

I’ve been going a lot since they reopened and from what I understand they are doing decent business all things considered, but nowhere near the crowd levels pre-COVID when current movies were being released. They do heavily encourage social distancing, but 90% of the time there is little to no one to distance from. Most of the movies I’ve been going to see have had 2 to 3 other people in the auditorium at max. Tickets are only $2 also, so I’ve been seeing a whole bunch of stuff. Jurassic Park, Grease, The Wizard of Oz, Indiana Jones Trilogy, E.T., Back To The Future, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Empire Strikes Back, Footloose, and several other good ones coming.

Of the 2 theaters closest to me, this one has the more classy old timey vibe with the red curtains and velvet trimming in the auditoriums and stuff, where as the other one was just recently remodeled and is ultra modern and sleek looking. Also, the other theater just re-closed, but they had less enticing prices and an underwhelming selection of films by comparison.
