Theaters in the United States are returning with 200 locations – variety2 min read
North American movie theaters are slowly coming to life with nearly 200 locations on Friday – almost double last weekend, ComScore reported.
Drive-in movie locations dominate about 150 of the country’s nearly 1506 drive-in locations that are now open to about 50 brick-and-mortar locations connected to ComScore.
Texas still has 29 open spaces, including most brick-and-mortar locations. He also opened a brick-and-mortar location in Arkansas, Georgia, Oklahoma and South Dakota – where state governments have begun to simplify social distance requirements arising from the coronavirus epidemic.
The country’s three largest chains – AMC, Regal and Cinemamark – closed in mid-March amid growing concerns about the epidemic. While Warner Bros. is set to open Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” until July 17, most theaters are not expected to open until mid-summer.
Gross reports are scattered. The horror film “The Reached” peaked at $ 211,957 in May, according to the IFC. Then for IFC’s “How to Make a Girl”, 19,802, Comedian Feldstein starred in a film adaptation of an awkward teenage music critic in a 2014 semi-autobiographical novel by comedian Caitlin Moran.
ComScore also reported that the highest-earning drive-in during the April 24-May 13 period was Mission Tiki in Montclair, California, which jumped 193% year-over-year in terms of business. The site, about 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, had an unofficial premiere for “The Rached” on May 1.
Starlight 4 in Atlanta is second on the list, followed by Redwood 4 in the western valley of Utah, BC of Aldergroy, Galaxy in Ennis, Tex., Holiday Twin in Fort Collins, Co, Auto in Greenwood, SC and Hounds in Kings Mountain, NC.
