That's actually a record for me. But i think i'll go more often in '20
There are at least 9-10 movies i want to see next year
Well, since theaters are closed here since early march, and still are closed until further notice, i guess i'm won't be seeing any movies there this year.
Even if they are opening again this summer, or later this year.. i don't think i will go there..

I'm not going to the movies even if they reopen this year, which they won't. I saw two movies in theaters this year. Birds of Prey and Sonic the Hedgehog. 98 short of my goal.

I've watched 106 movies in a theatre this year, plus 110 more during film festivals (and plus 32 classics I saw in cinemas or at the French Cinematheque, on big screens in any case)...

I do live in Paris, where many cinemas are available. It's also one the main reasons why I refused to move elsewhere in the past... I wouldn't want to live far from cinemas, I have the habit, the crave, the enjoyment of going to the movies very regularly. I wouldn't adapt well to a place where this can't be done anymore, I would feel frustrated and wouldn't know what to do with myself. I couldn't stand knowing a movie I'm interested in is out, but is not showing near my home... I'm just too old to change (and I don't want to in any case).
April was the first month since at least 15 years during which I haven't been in a movie theater at all... In Paris, they reopen on June 22nd, I'm taking a day off to spend that day watching films in a theatre.

I guess the last movie I saw in a theater was "Jojo Rabbit," back in January. That's the only theater movie I saw during 2020.

Only one or two open locally so far and nothing on the schedule yet that's tempted me. I'm pretty sure it's pretty empty (you can see from website of one how many tickets available and looks like <10 sold for all the showings today) so wouldn't be too worried about going to a near-empty screening, and I do want to support so they don't all die out. But combination of sunny weather & not great options means not yet.

Earmarked The Painted Bird which is meant to be coming out next month (it was going to be March, I had it in calendar), because a gruelling 3hr war film is just the kind of thing needed to lift my spirits in a pandemic :) And might go see Nolan save cinema if Tenet does come out as currently planned toward end of Aug.

I have seen some old stuff projected outdoors and I am planning to see Tenet on iMAX... if they don’t change release date again.
I want to support my local cinema but there is nothing really exciting around yet.

I just checked and it looks like some of my local theaters are opening back up this Friday, and some the following Friday (August 21). But there will be nothing playing that is at all worth seeing, until Tenet I guess. Not really a Nolan fan but I'll likely see it in the cinema whenever it starts playing around here some time in September. Though I do want to be assured that some kind of social distancing measures are in place before I go. Not gonna go if I feel that their precautionary measures are lacking.

I'll do a list too. It may well end up being the final list for the year - I don't see any likelihood of cinemas opening here in Wisconsin or in Illinois anytime remotely soon. One of my friends sent an email saying that the Music Box in Chicago was open but that doesn't really help as, being a Wisconsin resident, I'm not allowed to go into the city without quarantining for 2 weeks. Even if I did want to take the risk and break the rules, it's too much of a hassle right now so, uh, no. I'll honestly be shocked if I get to see another film in a cinema this year, given the way things are going here. I'll just be happy if the whole country hasn't burned down, and I still have electricity and the internet and heat and can watch movies at all. Anyway up to this point it's

1. Ford v Ferrari
2. Uncut Gems
3. Tenki no ko / Weathering With You
4. Little Women (2019)
5. 1917
6. Sátántangó (2nd)
7. Little Women (2nd)
8. Marriage Story
9. The Gentlemen
10. Jojo Rabbit
11. Oscar Nominated Live Action Shorts program
12. Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts program
13. Varda by Agnès
14. Little Women (3rd)
15. Jumanji: The Next Level
16. Birds of Prey
17. Portrait de la jeune fille en feu / Portrait of a Lady on Fire
18. Al-mummia / The Night of Counting the Years (re-watch) 35mm

I always start out slow - all I get around here is the leftovers in Jan-Feb, and the weather usually impacts how often I might travel up to Madison to the Cinematheque - only 3 trips this year. So 18 is a respectable number through the first week of March, and if not for the pandemic I suspect I might have hit 100 for the year, which would be my biggest number since 2000. It's nice that my cinema-going so far ended on a high note with the last two films - and the last actually being in 35.

I feel exactly the same way, and I don't trust my local AMCs at all to be blunt, and trust my local citizens even less. Just looked at the UW Cinematheque's website - I would trust them to do things right - and though it doesn't say for sure it's looking like they will not have their doors open for the fall semester.

Yeah, for me my local multiplexes are Regals and Cinemarks, and for those I'm definitely going to wait to hear how they're conducting themselves when they open up (reading their website if they go into detail about it there, or maybe ask some friends/family members if they want to act as guinea pigs and go out to see a movie before I do, and report back). There's a small independent/arthouse theater in the nearest decent-sized city to me, but it still seems up in the air whether they'll even be in business again at all.

I've only got cineplexes nearby. The local indy thingie - it was envisioned to be a theatre with movies and other performances attached to an overpriced, mediocre restaurant I never went to - is under new ownership with big pans but nothing announced. No idea if it will be a cinema or something completely different.

The cineplex to my west is showing a nightly film outdoors - I assume in their parking lot. Tonight is Empire Strikes Back. Almost tempting if I didn't have to take a bus which might or might not have room (passengers are limited and they won't board if full, which is likely). Maybe they're treating it like a drive in - the website doesn't explain what's going on. The one to the east is still shuttered and probably will be for quite some time.

I'm a bit surprised, I thought with Orange Satan's control of the virus and massive reopening of everything, more theatres would be open in other parts of the country. Now that I think about it, since the metro area is tied together, theatres won't be opening any time soon. (We have consistently exceeded the desired target for both positive tests and community transmission required to enter the next stage of reopening, but honestly, that's all gotten so confused, I'm not sure where things stand.)

501. - Bando (2020) - 6.0

as you can see there is a lot of retrospective stuff in there ("Black Light" and "Women make Film" programmes in EYE, but local cineplexes also screen a lot of older stuff now)
of the new movies I loved "About Endlessness" best, but have to say I already saw most of what is out now earlier in the year, and even last year, at festivals.

total feature count in cinema on 91 for this year! (508 seen in total, usually I'm around 30% cinema... so I've taken a hit on that count ;))

Our local cinemas mainly showing older films or as already released this year. I don’t want to wear a mask for 2 hours or whatever though so will wait until I don’t have to.

Went to cinema for first time for 6 months today :party: Saw Les Miserables, pretty good film in the realm of La Haine, though some parts stretched believability

Sum total of 7 people there in a screen they could hold 150+ so it didn't feel too risky. Also didn't feel too sustainable for future of the cinema but it was an afternoon screening and I've experienced plenty that quiet in the pre pandemic days.

I got to see Tenet in theatres last week, bringing me to a grand total of two films seen in theatres this year (saw 1917 back in Feb).

Theatres here reopened end of July/beginning of August, at half capacity. They've put Xs on every other seat and won't let anyone sit together, even if they're from the same household. They had an amusing social media post about it earlier but I can't find it now. Apparently the staff even come down through the theatre during the movie to ensure that the rules are being followed.

Nothing else really interests me so far - when they reopened, they start with a bunch of holdovers from earlier in the year, plus Peninsula (Train to Busan sequel). Now they're playing new releases as per usual, but I don't know if I'll catch anything else here before I leave. Nothing really seems like a "must see on the big screen" from the currently planned lineup. The Eight Hundred that just entered the box office list just opened here... maybe I'll see what that's all about. Bill & Ted is also playing, but I haven't seen the second one, and I probably need to rewatch the first one. Mulan is also big, but I'm not keen on these Disney live action remakes.

A total of 4:

Jojo Rabbit (2019)
Knives Out (2019)
Little Women (2019)
1917 (2019)

The last one in early Feb. Our cinemas have been open again since June I think, but I haven't heard about anything that interests me and I normally don't even see as many as four tbh so pandemic hasn't really affected by cinema-going. I had quite a few points to spend on half-price or free films so I cashed out on them.
