I’ve been refreshing the web site for the regional theater chain based mostly right here in Memphis the place I reside all morning, attempting to get my arms on some Tenet film tickets — the primary I’ve purchased since perhaps January or February. You’ll by no means guess why.
Theaters right here have been reopening on a rolling foundation, which comes at a time when, knock on wooden, our native coronavirus circumstances are beginning to fall to rather more manageable and no-longer-worrisome ranges. However, don’t get me improper — I don’t have any intention of stepping foot inside a theater once more anytime quickly, by no means thoughts how wonderful director Christopher Nolan thinks his newest function movie is. Tenet is, nonetheless, reportedly coming to our native drive-in theater, which I’ll be very happy to purchase a ticket for. Watching the film from the security of my automotive, wonderful. Sitting alone indoors in a room with a bunch of strangers whereas we nonetheless don’t have a coronavirus vaccine, although, is simply not one thing I’m eager on proper now — and yet one more Hollywood director has kind of agreed with this stance in latest days.

You don’t care about others. You suck.”
Epidemiologist Dr. Abdul El-Sayed just lately instructed The A.V. Membership that going to see a film on the large display screen is “just about the last thing I’d do right now.” However, Nolan’s newest big-screen epic has already opened internationally and is coming to cities across the US in September — although Derrickson isn’t the one Hollywood director who thinks it’s a bit unsafe to see a movie like this in an indoor theater proper now.

So there’s the question of whether we want that to happen, which we do, but whether that’s practical and safe and whether we can recommend it, which I don’t think we could. Just from the way that I’m approaching the pandemic with my family is we’re very conservative about it.”
