New Movies Plan To Return To Theaters As Soon As July 1 — Will You Go?

Unhinged starring Russell Crowe is scheduled to open in just over a month.

In mid March, major movie theater chains like Regal Cinemas and AMC announced they would be temporarily closing due to the coronavirus. They’ve remained closed since then, but some movies — as of now — plan to open in theaters this summer.

Unhinged, a road rage thriller starring Russell Crowe, aims to be the first movie back in theaters and is scheduled to be released in just a little over a month on July 1.

Solstice Studios

Christopher Nolan’s latest big-budget thriller, Tenet, is scheduled to be released on July 17.

Warner Bros.

And Disney's Mulan, a live-action adaptation of the classic animated feature, is scheduled to be released on July 24.

Not far behind? Wonder Woman 1984 is scheduled for release on August 14 and Bill & Ted Face the Music is scheduled for release on August 21.

If these films are released in theaters as planned — a big "if" — the moviegoing experience will be different. Moviegoers will likely have their temperature taken before entering the theater, sit apart from others, and wear masks.

Theaters will also be cleaned thoroughly before and after each screening. The above image — of a recently reopened theater in Prague, Czech Republic — may be similar to what our moviegoing experience will be like.

    Maybe. I'm not totally comfortable with the idea of going to a movie theater yet, but that could change once theaters open and I see how it works.
