Lisa’s Week In Review: 8/17/20 — 8/23/20


Look Cinema, R.I.P.

Another week comes to an end.

I’m a little bit sad because I learned that one of my favorite theaters — my beloved Look Cinema — has gone out of business as a result of the pandemic.  Look was my favorite theater to go to.  It was like the Alamo Drafthouse but not as expensive and usually with less hipsters in the audience.  The last film that I saw in a theater was at Look Cinema.  And now it’s gone.

Supposedly, the theaters down here will be reopening at the end of the upcoming week.  Personally, I’m not ready to go back yet.  If theater can remain open for a month without it resulting in another wave of infections, I’ll consider taking the risk.  If that means that I’m late seeing Tenet …. well, that sucks.  Because I really want to see Tenet.  But safety first.

Here’s what I watched and read and listened to this week:
