Nato Gets Positive News for Theaters in $2.2 Trillion Senate Aid Package

At a singular time when just about every stateside movie theater is closed (aside from a few drive-ins), the organization that represents the global major theater chains as well as mom and pop cinemas–some 33,000 screens across North America– is celebrating the Senate’s massive nationwide financial package to stem the economic crisis, which passed Wednesday night. The bill will go to the House, where approval is expected, and then to President Trump, who has said he will sign it right away.

The National Association of Theaters is applauding the passage of the bipartisan $2.2 trillion aid package meant to ease immediate economic burdens across the country. Per their press release, “theaters can look forward with confidence to reopening and once again serving their communities when this crisis has passed.”
