So How was my first visit back to the movie theaters?
Well Fast 9 was released in theaters and the hype was all around the city. The movie was anticipated for a couple of years as things got set back due to the pandemic. Warner Brothers released all of their big titles on HBO Max including the upcoming Space Jam 2. This affected the theaters which obviously wasn't opened and we lost the going to the movie experience that many of us grew up to love.
Well last night, my wife and I made our first journey back to the movie theaters. This was the first time that we have gone since January of 2020. I have to admit I was a little apprehensive, but I wanted to see Fast 9 on the big screen and I wasn't disappointed. On a high note, the movie was great, the action was packed and there were plenty of surprises in the movie that many didn't expect. However, while the theater was cleaned. I was a little uncomfortable about the closeness of the patrons in the theater. I remember when movie theaters first opened up, there was a 6 foot distance between moviegoers. I know that the world has opened back up, but that still concerns me a little.
What made matters a little more uncomfortable was that the person sitting next to me was coughing. This could have been from him eating refreshments and potentially getting choked up, but it lasted for a good bit of the movie until it finally stopped. Overall the experience wasn't to bad, but I can't say I will be in the theaters as much as I used too until things truly get back to normal, but it felt good to be in the reclining seat again and being able to enjoy a great movie on the big screen.
