Not to mention, I have a weakened immune system. So do I go? If so, when do I go? I'm currently planning to wait for a mostly vacant theater in the early morning or very late night, but honestly, I'm not sure about it all. Should I go earlier? Later? Not at all? Still do not know.

I would say choose a less crowded time and go. My brother is in a similar situation and works for Nordstrom has been thrown into the biggest sale of the year around hundreds of people all day for the last month. Approach it as safely as possible but don't deny yourself the things you love. I will be going opening night for sure.

Personally, I’d probably go for the earliest screening of the day possible. Not only the crowds are lesser, but let’s say, if you catch the first screening of the day, theoretically the chances of the entire place being properly cleaned up and ventilated are bigger in the morning, rather than late at night.

From my experience, definitely go to the earliest screening. Morning shows are way less crowded than evening shows. Super late shows are a 50/50 depending on location, movie and weekday/weekend.

As I stated earlier, I’ve seen INCEPTION multiple times but seeing it in a theater was like seeing the movie for the first time. I didn’t think I could possibly love it more than I already do.

In my experience there aren't any less crowded showings of Nolan movies. For the first 2 weeks at least.

People buy the tickets for the front row seats in IMAX and watch his movies sitting like this:

PS, very good points about going earlier than later. I hadn't thought about that.

@Vader: Well, doesn't your theater of choice say how many empty seats they'll leave between people?
If I were you I'd go, but like the others said, at the earliest possible screening.

I know a person who regularly does this to avoid sitting too close to other people – e.g. to avoid sitting next to a couple if going to the cinema alone, which could be annoying. Go for it if money's no object.

Sorry to burst that idea, but you'll be in cinema. If someone has covid, you're in a perfect environment to get it, sitting there for three hours in a room that circulates that same air.

I'm going day one but it's probably not the best idea.

We had most cases since the start of pandemic today: 209. The entire country open to around 1 million tourists atm. Most cases are due to night clubs. I'm worried about cinemas reopening on august 20th because it's all so fragile.

Massive spoilers in the Tenet thread(s) so don't even bother going in them anymore.

So I'm just going to watch out for show times at the drive in theater.

I'm just so pissed. I basically came to terms with the fact that all of 2020 is cancelled for me. But this was the one thing I was looking forward to. I did everything right, I wore a mask when I go out for groceries and basically stayed home. I didn't even go to the protests even though I really wanted to

So I'm sacrificing so much for other people and still cases are going up because of selfish people who don't take precautions.

I'm just so mad.
