Since the Covid Crisis has hit cinemas, movie studios have been reluctant to introduce new movies. This has caused theatres to bring back Classic movies to the big screen to allow people to watch movies the way they were intended to be watched.
It used to be that you could not see classic movies on a weekend in prime slots reserved for new movies.
With Covid crisis, movies that I have only seen on video or on tv, I could see on the big screen with great sound. When Sean Connery passed away, audiences were treated to “Goldfinger” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”. Audiences who had only seen these movies on the small screen could could see them they way they were originally meant to be seen.
There is something about a large darkened theatre that makes some of these epic films that much more enjoyable. The Staypuft marshmellow man from Ghostbusters seems so much bigger than life on the big screen and the battle on the Hoth Planet in “Empire Strikes Back” seems so much more grandiose. When my child first saw “Close Encounters of The Third Kind” he was not that impressed but when he saw it in theatres, he was wowed by the dazzling effects when they were displayed on the big screen.
For people who are concerned about Covid, when the movies are over, a cleaning crew is quick to come in and disinfect the area for other theatre goers.
If there is a bright side to the Covid Crisis, it might be a chance to see classic movies on the big screen at your local cinemas. You can then see all of the classic movies you grew up with and watch them the way they were meant to be seen.
