Perhaps drive-in theaters will make a comeback?

Still, the "home theater" experience allowed by streaming and movie rental services can be very nice, and in some cases better than a movie theater, which may not be as comfortable. Many people also enjoy older movies, such as the alluded "Play it Again, Sam" (1972), a comedy directed by Herbert Ross about Allan Felix (Woody Allen), a recently divorced film critic who looks for guidance from Humphrey Bogart.

Not everyone is eager to see new releases in theaters.
