People are Settling into New Entertainment Habits

 “But things didn’t quite turn out that way. That’s why I have to contact them. Now, before it’s too late.” – Augustine, “The Midnight Sky “ Netflix, 2020

We primed ourselves for a real treat last week, checking NYC flights, hotel reservations, theater ticket availability.

No, it’s not a vacation or business trip. 

Broadway is finally reopening so we’re planning to go back and see Tina … again!

To get in the mood, we watched her 2009 final concert music video.   Then her 1993 movie, What’s Love Got to Do with It.  Then the documentary Tina. 

Sure, movie house experiences are great, watching stuff on our home screen is good but feeling the vibes of live theater is ridiculously outta’ sight. 

Don’t get us wrong, we were glad to hear AMC’s CEO Adam Aron proclaim, “We’re back and we’re hot,” this summer.

Tentpole upon tentpole upon tentpole, validated theaters were back … bigger, badder and more profitable than ever.
