It’s no secret that COVID-19 has changed how many things operate, and movie theaters are no exception to this change. With limited release of new movies to the theaters, there was an missing piece that needed to be filled. 

Movies have always played an important role in providing entertainment for the community. However, COVID-19 has altered the production and release process across the nation and the world; even causing some movies to postpone their release into the theaters. 

In the meantime, older, popular movies, have been played in the absence of new films. Movies that have made a return to the theaters have been “Die Hard,” “Frozen,” “Toy Story,” and many more. During the christmas season, theaters are also premiering classic christmas movies such as “Elf,” “A Christmas Story,” “The Polar Express,” and “Christmas Vacation.”

“A Quiet Place Part II” was set to hit the theaters in March of 2020, but will not be released until the spring of 2021 at the earliest. 

Disney’s live action production of “Mulan” was also supposed to make its first appearance in theaters in March 2020. Through complications involving the worldwide pandemic, COVID-19, Mulan never saw the movie theater screen, and was alternately made available for purchase in September 2020 on Disney Plus.

New movies have begun to make a return to local theaters. Many theaters have slowly started to return back to normal by finding solutions to keep it a safe and clean environment. To prevent overcrowding and maintain social distancing, most theaters are only selling tickets on every other row. 

The sequel to the 2013 film, “The Croods,” “Tenet,” “Come Play,” and “All My Life” are now being shown at most theaters to provide a variety of genres for moviegoers’ entertainment.
