There are lots of great movies that will premier in July and August, which ones do you expect to see? I'm going to see the latest Spiderman and I hope it's decent because I've found some movies in that franchise great and some boring. The last movie I saw was Dark Phoenix and I'm one of the few viewers who liked it, so maybe that bodes well for the Spiderman flick too.

Like a lot of traditional formats. Newspapers, radio, physical copy's of music and the movie theater, are somewhat languishing these days. Two long standing movie theaters around me have recently closed. So, even being able to go out for the cinematic experience seems to be in some jeopardy these days. Irrespective to what even you'd care to go see.

I know it isn't the same experience, but at least studios don't hold the movie hostage anymore. Now you can quickly find them On Demand, Netflix, and other channels shortly after the movie theater premiere. I hate to hear about businesses closing though, especially since it hurts livelihoods and the local economy.

My kids and I are excited to see The Lion King. Some of Disney's other remakes were lame, especially Dumbo, so I hope this one is better. I think it will be good, especially with Beyonce and Donald Glover in the mix.

@Rusty, small theaters are struggling around here, but the big chains are still doing well. It's awful to see a business close. I hope you have other theater options because sometimes you just have to experience the movie on the big screen to get the full effect.

I agree Madison. Unless your Jeff Bezos and have a house as big as a multiplex theater. The in theater experience is something that even the best home theater can't match, (size wise). Sure I can drive further to get the theater fix. But those nearby ones are much missed now. Whadda ya bet. Years from now. After brick and mortar theaters become almost extinct. They'll make a comeback, like vinyl did. The streaming experience will become stale like week old bread.
