The Coronavirus pandemic has drastically changed the way we live our lives. With social distancing becoming the new norm, many businesses have had serious questions about how they will continue.
One of that businesses is movie theaters. Obviously the idea of sitting next to a stranger in a big room for 2+ hours will not be something people are comfortable with for quite a while.
But there could be an alternative to still going to watch a movie; drive-in theaters. There are only about 300 drive-ins currently operating in America, but I wouldn’t be surprised if those numbers increase.
In Texas, the Showboat Drive-In Theater has seen a 40 percent increase in ticket sales, and the theater, which usually closes during the week, has been able to remain open since the pandemic began. There, cars must park ten feet away from each other, and moviegoers must wear a mask whenever exiting the car. But is seems to currently be the perfect date night considering the current situation.
