Basically for two reasons, first I now subscribe to movie channels like Starz, Showtime, etc. second as the price has gone up the value of it has gone down. That said, there are some films which really "deserve" to be seen on a screen that big, so I imagine I'll continue going occasionally once the pandemic clears, obviously.
Also, I am most likely never setting foot inside of a theater ever again,...
The global pandemic, you may have heard of it.
Seriously though, even post vaccination, assuming I can get vaccinated this year, in this shitshow of a state, I don't feel as though the reward outweighs the risk of sitting in people's exhalations for 2-3 hours.
We're probably well on our way in the USA to a new strain outbreak, either UK or South African or Brazilian variants of COVID19, and the country still has 70,000 new infections a day? Assuming people are even getting tested widely in every state, the pandemic is not under control, and people are refusing to wear masks, or wear them properly in a lot of the country.
Add in that some movies are going to streaming earlier, and I can watch in the comfort of my own home, with my own food/living room, etc. ... I have less and less interest in ever going back to a theatre, even if COVID19 magically disappears in 2022.
