Imagine you leave your house, and you go to your favorite movie theater in Westbrook, and it said closed forever? This isn't a real thing that's happening right now at this very moment, but it very well could. According to Fox Business News, veteran filmmakers such as Christopher Nolan, Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, and many others have come to Congress asking for the movie theater industry to be bailed out.

This afternoon, the group of filmmakers, including Seth Rogen, submitted a letter to Congress asking about unallocated money from the cares to help ailing theaters that have lost 75% of revenue from this year because of COVID and delayed releases.

The group also acknowledges that with small to midsize theaters and independent chains facing the danger of extinction, it will limit competition and eliminate 66% of the jobs in the movie theater industry domestically. Hopefully, it won't come to this, and speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will remedy this situation.

Yes, so many people have home entertainment centers like the one we just gave away last week. However, there's something about going to a theater that is still magical the smell of the popcorn, the coming attractions that can never be duplicated in your own house. What are your thoughts? Should they bail out the movie theaters, or is it time to change?
