Can Christopher Nolan save cinema … again?

The Atlantic argues, compellingly, that Christopher Nolan has “saved cinema” once before by insisting on Inception being shot on film; and with his new film, Tenet, may be about to save the very notion of cinemagoing itself.

Nolan has publicly shouldered the same intense responsibility that he took on after the release of Inception. This time, the issue isn’t the future of celluloid – rather, it’s the future of cinemas following months of lost grosses, and months more of diminished ticket sales even when theaters reopen, due to likely capacity reductions.
