Do you remember when âgoing to the lobbyâ was real? We don’t sing the song anymore. Some of the more historic cinemas, like the Cinerama Dome in Los Angeles, are still closed.
Still, with new products from prominent directors such as Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro, and Chloe Zhao, it may be possible to return to the multiplex.
âIt’s exciting to have so many great movies with this potential for quality,â said film critic Elvis Mitchell.
Correspondent Lee Cowan asked, âAre there any trends this fall?
“The trend is Come here please!âMitchell laughed.
For the public NOT. When they come, they see their familiar faces, reminiscent of the days when the theater was king.
Tom cruise returns “Top Gun: Maverick” (At the theater on November 19, 45 days later at Paramount +).

Keanu Reeves is back “The Matrix: Resurrection” (December 22):
Jamie Lee Curtis is back “Halloween Murder” (October 15):
But are big names and nostalgia enough for moviegoers to face the ongoing pandemic?
Mitchell said, “Well, let me ask you: don’t you I want to return? “
âYeah, I really miss that,â Cowan replied.
âYeah, yeah, I think there’s an audience,â Mitchell said. âPeople want to go. “
It could be for a movie like a remake of “Dune” (Opening Oct. 22) is so expansive that streaming it on TV is as frustrating as driving a Ferrari through an endless school zone.
Cowan asked, âDo you think this is a discussion about the future now? “
âI think the discussion is over,â Mitchell replied. “I think streaming is already a winner.”
However, I think the news of the film’s death is overblown. Even COVID couldn’t replace the desire to be swallowed in the dark by making strangers experience something together.
âIt’s actually something we’ve been missing out on over the past couple of years. It’s a night out, Mitchell said.
