Paramount has revealed that their Sonic the Hedgehog movie will be returning to theaters in the United States and Canada for a limited time starting today. Currently, showings are listed for various theaters from today to next Thursday. As theaters attempt to navigate reopening amidst a pandemic, they are largely falling back on showing older films due to a dearth of new releases, with Sonic now being one of them.
We won’t beat around the bush, here: we at Sonic Stadium DO NOT endorse doing anything that will put your health at risk, including going to places like movie theaters where social distancing will be difficult to impossible. Last month, the Texas Medical Association released a chart that listed movie theaters as one of the places where risk of COVID-19 infection is high. While COVID-19 is believed to infect older and sicker people worse, healthy young people can also come down with a serious infection, which can lead to months of ongoing symptoms or death. If you still decide to go, please follow all health guidelines and ordinances.
Alternatively, you could just rent the movie for the price of a cheap movie ticket, or buy it outright for the price of a few, and just enjoy it in the safety of your home.
