Nolan’s Views On Theaters Being Closed Down
Nolan wrote an essay for the Washington Post recently.
Nolan understands that the lockdown of theatres worldwide is a necessity at a time like this. However, he requests the public to be supportive of them when they reopen. He talks about how theatres are an essential part of the social life of the masses.
He urges people to think about theatres not only as a means of entertainment. It is also an industry that provides livelihood to so many people.
The theatres are currently going through a dark phase of financial crisis like every other industry.
Many businesses affected by the pandemic are submitting applications of assistance to the government. Nolan pleads with them to consider the requests of the theater industry as well.
Nolan writes that once the ongoing crisis is over, people will need theatres all the more to laugh and cry together, to feel the social connection that was missing all these months.
Here’s hoping that Christopher Nolan voice gets heard.
