One thing that influences the audiences to go back to the theater is the release of the delayed movies, Lots of movies changed their release dates due to pandemic situation, Movie fan crowd maybe don’t go to theaters bit in the start but it will go fast when the things get starting normal again, but the theaters will not open their gates once it’s completely safe.
