Shortly before quarantine hit, my husband and I saw Casablanca in a theater. I had certainly seen it multiple times on TV, but it WAS different seeing it on a big screen.

I also think that there will be a niche for going to a cinema on dates. My children do “movie nights” in their homes with friends, but going to a cinema seems safer than going to some barely known person’s home, just the two of you.
