We knew the plague would change everything including what we took for granted. Movie theater company AMC is desperate for business and after watching its stock price ($AMC) start the year at 7.46 USD and then dip to 2.08 in April and again to 2.15 last week, rolled out its movie theater rental program.
Up to 19 other people with whom you can barely get along anyway can pitch in for the 99 to 349 USD cost depending on the movie. You can book it here. Leaving companies alone to figure it out because they have to or they disappear forever is a good policy.
Many companies have figured out that work from home is actually viable and adults can indeed be trusted to work out of sight. Retail operations have adjusted by adding booking services for appointments and of course curb side delivery. We've seen newfound artists suddenly find the courage to post their work on IG.
July saw 84.3% more new business applications in the US over last year and Louisiana rocked a 240% jump from July 2019. Maybe we can actually create and solve problems because we must. The only bummer here is that it took a plague to force many to self reflect and realize they really can do this.
Making smartass remarks to a bad movie is a lot less fun 6 feet away.
