To follow the social distancing and also participate in an activity that would release some of the frustration that comes with isolation, some families in the United States have decided to go to the movies.
Instead of going to watch movies at a regular theatre, families made the decision to go to drive-in cinemas as a precautionary measure. This allows them to have fun and also be safe from contracting the virus.
This move by many of the families has become a blessing to owners of drive-in theaters. Many of them have reported an increase in the sale of tickets in recent times since people were advised to practice self-isolation.
According to the Los Angeles Times, owners of drive-ins in California, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri revealed in interviews that they have reported ticket sales increase in their businesses.
