Poll: Would You Go to a Movie Theater Without a COVID-19 Vaccine?

Recent polling has shown that the majority of Americans are hesitant to go to any large indoor gathering, such as a concert, convention or movie theater, before a vaccine for COVID-19 is developed. This poll is to ascertain under what conditions people are willing to return to commercial theaters to watch movies.

Why would I possibly take the risk of getting sick, possibly very sick, possibly dying a miserable death to watch a movie that in a few months I can stream? So my answer is no.

I'll go when it is proven safe to do so by medical personnel, not by some politician.

The poll option I would have picked had it been available is:

  • I'll go to theaters if the movie is worth seeing on the really-big screen and the theater is lightly peopled*.

I'd rather wait until it's safer...whether that means a vaccine or some sort of time period elapsing I'm not sure...even before the virus, I've been more picky as to what movies I want to see in theatres- real 70mm IMAX and Dolby Cinema

There’s nothing I’m dying to see. Okay, bad joke. I’d go post vaccine, if they ever develop one. (Such things are not automatic)

Yes, but that's because there is no vaccine for a virus that continually changes. We love movie popcorn and the theater experience but all these movie theater companies need to stop saying "magic of the movies", they all say it now and it gets a little tiresome to hear. Then again we've had a great time renting some of the newest movies and watching in our little home theater.

BTW, don't let the media scare you to death, they're doing a great job at that. The main doctors involved at the highest levels are in cahoots with certain people trying to sell everyone in the world yearly vaccines. These same people promised a pandemic in Trump's administration over 2 years ago (plenty of video footage of this). I'm NOT a huge conspiracy nut but my conspiracy friends have shown me enough to realize something smells rotten in Denmark, especially when Gates is ready for phase 3 of a "vaccine" before the virus even got released. If you want to understand why a COVID vaccine is theoretically impossible research the flu vaccine and how it doesn't prevent people from getting new strains of the virus. Then realize the strain has mutated at least twice in the last 3 months so Gate's vaccine is now severely outdated and won't prevent anything. But he'll be successful in selling 6 billion of them since virus vaccines is a repeatable business, and forcing everyone to buy yearly vaccines going forward. Vaccines only work with virus' that don't mutate.

I will not set foot in a theater until there is clear, irrefutable medical evidence that COVID-19 is under control and there is a vaccine and rapid testing widespread. Even then there will need to be something really big I want to see on an IMAX screen.

I've hated movie theaters for years. Force Awakens was the last straw for me. People suck and have no respect for anyone else but themselves. That is why you must have a home theater instead.

They could be "free" admission. I won't be there.

That would be equal to drinking the water in the kiddie pool on a hot summer day.

Yeah, I'd totally go. I'd be careful, but I'd go. I've already had two concerts and a convention cancelled out from under me. I'm pissed. Never said I was logical, or rational.

That said, I get to the theater maybe once or twice a year, gotta be something I really, really want to see. Everything else, I can wait for the disk, or stream it as my least liked choice.

I've long preferred my home theater - it's completely dark with no signs, it's got excellent PQ, it's got great sound: dead quiet for the silent moments, never too quiet, never too loud. The movie is always just right, and the timing is always just perfect. The snacks are gourmet food, at the cost of theater popcorn, there's top-shelf drinks to go with them, and ample room all around.

What's not to like?

I also think a big part of this decision has to do with your age and overall health...if you're not in the 'at risk' group then the decision to go these public gatherings is easier

Well, the chip thing is a bit conspiratorial, but I've never had a flu vaccine, and I've never had the flu..... Knock on wood.....

It's not "me" I'm worried about. It's about others being irresponsible infecting me and others. Most people have the "it's not going to happen to me" syndrome.


Also... how well the staff disinfects everything in the theater between showings.

Does this forum not have administrators to delete irresponsible and dangerous troll posts?

Questions about vaccine effectiveness are valid, but anti-vax claims and conspiracy theories presented as facts actually reinforce dangerous behavior that, in cases such as flu and Covid 19, can lead to death for vulnerable populations.

On the poll, and from perspective as a health educator and personnel specialist for a hospital, and as someone who still likes to see movies in theater (usually IMAX or equivalent upgraded theater brands, and especially if 3D), I would return when we are between options 2 & 3. I voted 2 (when number of cases have significantly reduced). But the healthcare educator in me would prefer, if an option:

When theaters ensure social distance spacing between seats and rows, customers and staff wear face masks, and the local government has a vigorous contact-tracing and testing program to isolate and prevent uncontrolled spread of Covid19.

Vaccine would be ideal, but good community control of the spread (including contact tracing guided by testing) would be enough for me to return to theaters and other businesses.

As for vaccines: they are as effective as each specific vaccine tests indicate (varies, depends on the specific illness it prevents). Flu vaccines are effective against the specific strain of flu expected based on early season cases indicate for that season. Sometimes an unexpected strain also arises, and the initial vaccine for that season would control the strain it is designed for, but less effective against unexpected strains. Those who are vulnerable benefit from the vaccine.

We don't yet know if a Covid19 disease vaccine would be long-lasting (like rubella vaccine) or need to be taken seasonally (like flu vaccine). The answer will be based on evidence. My advice: Trust evidence, it is always more reliable than uninformed hunches or rumour. Evidence-based healthcare is the standard that can and does control or treat dangerous illnesses most effectively. When theaters base their business on evidence of what reduces spread inside their business, then I'll return.

I reported the anti-vax comments to the moderators and suggest you and anyone else who can, do the same.

I think you miss the basic point: they are off topic. At least claims about 4K and interconnects are relevant to the reason this forum exists. Talk about Vaccine's has nothing to do with the topic of this thread or with Home Theater. Just keep the posts on topic or delete them.

Questions about vaccine effectiveness are valid, but anti-vax claims and conspiracy theories presented as facts actually reinforce dangerous behavior that, in cases such as flu and Covid 19, can lead to death for vulnerable populations.
Who's presenting any such thing as a scientific fact? Looks to me like people are just expressing opinions and experiences...

We're not in the practice of banning people or pulling their posts just because they claim 4K can't be seen by the human eye or that all interconnect cables must cost at least $25k/ft .

Keep your ignore lists current so as to have the most enjoyable experience while here.
Thank you!

Sure it does, it's in the poll and the title of the thread! And this forum doesn't exist for Covid-19, so this subforum is a side show. Of course stuff like this is gonna elicit interesting responses and lead to straying. (Just check out the other Covid threads....) But this one is staying civil, and so long as it does, let it roll....
