To go or not to go was the query?
The primary query to test was what was there. The reality is that nothing particularly encouraging: “The Croods 2” and “Marvel Lady 1984” that I had already seen and that they returned; “Inform me how a lot you” and “The day after tomorrow” which was additionally there once they closed (once more), the second, no less than, is already on platforms; principally all of Harry Potter and others that by now really feel outdated like “Tenet” and “Glad new”. The novelties had been “Tom and Jerry,” “Monster Hunter,” and the Billy Eilish documentary that premiered concurrently on Apple TV. And the “information” remained when he renewed the supply, that is, no less than in CDMX nothing new arrived; in different states it did, for instance “Chaos Strolling” with Tom Holland. Whole, that on that facet was not very encouraging (go, Disney + premiered “Stripe and the final dragon” and Amazon “A prince in New York 2” that sounds a lot better and Netflix at all times has no less than one placing premiere amongst the virtually ten that launches per week). Nonetheless, I made a decision to go.
For the stressed, the different problem, in fact important, was the safety measures. Already in August he had inspired me to return how he was documented in “How is going to the cinema in the new regular” revealed in this identical area and the place I commented that the cinema, it appears to me, is a secure area. And I reiterate, as then, the choice and the threat is private. After that event I returned a number of instances. Few really, as a result of quite a bit relies upon, for me, no less than on what is being exhibited. The final two I noticed in 2020, simply when the new closure was introduced, had been “Marvel Lady 1984” on its first day and the solely time I had a room “full”, that is, 30%, and “Los Croods 2 ”the place there have been about 5 of us (it was not a premiere and it was a matinee). So he already knew the safety measures and was comfy with them.
On this event, I opted to see “Inform me how a lot you”, a Mexican romantic comedy that I used to be interested in and that was not unhealthy, nor is it a gem. I went to one final present. Now, there are fewer capabilities, the first ones are shortly after midday and the final earlier than 20 hours.
The measures, to a big extent (forgive the redundancy), are the identical. Right here is a clarification, the solely chain that reopens is Cinépolis. Cinemex solely gives screenings in auto cinema. It is really helpful to purchase the ticket earlier than (this time I didn’t strive it by way of the App, it had failed at the finish of the yr). At the entrance they take your temperature, provide you with gel and ask you to register your go to through QR code; In case you have a ticket you may go to the room. In any other case, in my case, the ticket is purchased in a sweet retailer and proper there, in order for you, you should purchase meals. The employees convey gloves, face masks and a masks; There is an acrylic that separates you from them, the product is delivered on one facet or in the decrease slit and, I reiterate, its terminals are the cleanest (earlier than and after you employ them they’re sanitized; solely the prospects contact them). Now, there is a draw back.
This time there have been a bit extra folks and the employees in bins is few. That induced that sooner or later we had been greater than 12 folks “in line” (really it was not, it was considerably amorphous in that we understood who went first and who went after, for the sake of wholesome distance). I waited round 15 minutes to purchase my tickets and it wasn’t that there have been many individuals earlier than, it’s that the cashier has to do every part and there have been solely two cashiers. A mannequin like Starbucks might serve you, somebody takes the order and the different prepares it; Even, opposite to apply, you first purchase your meals and whereas they’re being ready you select your locations. As a result of it have to be mentioned, there are those that take “their lives” to select and it is not that there are numerous choices.
The rooms at the moment are at 20%. The corridors that aren’t working are blocked and in these which are, there are just a few locations accessible. So by shut you’re no less than a few seats from another person. There are a variety of indicators, indicators at the starting and finish and an individual comes when the film ends to point out the exit. The doorways are open always in order that air flow is nearly as good as potential. Neither the gentle nor the exterior sound had been disturbing.
So the return to the films, once more, was, usually talking, good. There are issues to enhance, nothing critical, and hopefully the supply of flicks improves. It is a subject that can have to be talked about, why go when there are extra engaging titles on platforms? Why ought to I see the Billie Eilish documentary in the cinema if I already pay for Apple TV? That may occur extra typically. Wow, even in the case of Disney +, why would I’ve to pay 329 pesos if I have already got an account? Or, if I determine to pay further, relying on the variety of folks, it may very well be cheaper to see it at the cinema, in order for you to see it now, or anticipate it to arrive … it is a matter to talk about. Anyway … the cinema is not a lot a city of ghosts; It is an expertise with areas for enchancment and I hope it will quickly be one in all a film.
