Movies are back with a vengeance

The popcorn is a-poppin’

Singdhi Sokpo

For the better part of the last few years, movie theaters were declared “dead.”

But that narrative’s recently been flipped on its head.

One interesting stat: The year-to-date box office is down approximately 30% from 2019. But the overall number of wide releases in 2022 is down roughly the same amount — meaning, on a per-film basis, movies appear to be doing just fine.

More than fine, actually.

So, while the overall box office is still down from pre-pandemic times, the popcorn is definitely poppin’.
