      Precautions like mask wearing, social distancing, sanitizing, and partial capacity have helped movie theaters open back up. With the new movie “Tenet” out, they are drawing in some customers. Studio Movie Grills are reopening with 50% capacity in Georgia, Texas, and Florida. Businesses are promising to take all precautions necessary to prevent spread of Covid-19. How effective are these safety steps? Are  the businesses really on top of making sure they follow through with these precautions? 

      Katie Kiesel, 11th grade, stated, “People had the option to wear a mask, but while in the theater you don’t have to. I kept mine off once in the theater because I was drinking water throughout. I think it was decently cleaned and I felt safe.”

     “Tenet”, a movie directed by Christopher Nolan and produced with Emma Thomas, scored a 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie is about a secret agent who embarks on a time-bending mission with the goal of preventing World War III. The movie was released on September 3rd with a runtime of 2 hours and 30 minutes.

           Katie Kiesel went to Studio Movie Grill to see the new movie, and said she enjoyed it. “Tenet was an amazing movie! Your mind has to work so hard to figure out what’s going on, but everything about it is just perfect. 100,000 out of 10.” Despite these unusual times, movie theaters have decided to reopen with “Tenet”, starring Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, and John David Washington.
