The Last Hoorah by Stephen Lackey

It’s hyperbolic, the title I mean. Theaters will reopen, but they may never be the same post pandemic. This summer they attempted a soft reopening and it was truly only for one film; TENET. Christopher Nolan pushed hard, leaning on the contract for the film, to ensure that the film only premiered in theaters, and shockingly the studio responsible for the film, Warner Brothers stood by him. The question is why? Why did this film over all films “require” theatrical viewing? I won’t be spoiling TENET here, but I will attempt to answer the question, and share my own experience seeing the film in an IMAX theater.
