After more than a year of benching its biggest spectacles, Hollywood is ready to dazzle again.

For streaming-weary audiences, the promise of air conditioning, popcorn, soda fountains, 60-foot screens and state-of-the-art sound could be a welcome respite from the living room and virtual watch parties. Not to mention the ever-romantic concept of the shared experience. For beleaguered movie theaters, it hasn’t come a moment too soon.
