‘Tenet’ was released in theaters in the second half of 2020 after months of delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film’s director, Christopher Nolan, known as a champion of preserving the classic filmgoing experience, was adamant that his movie should be seen on a big screen if at all possible and had shot much of it in the IMAX format for that reason. As a result, it was only more recently available on streaming, whereas many other movies released in recent months reached those platforms relatively more quickly. Both our regular contributors on movies, Jacqueline Soller and Charles Hinshaw, are based in New York City and chose to safely see the movie on IMAX screens, while J. McVay is in Austin, Texas, and decided to rent it at home. The three discuss the film and getting back to going to the movies.

Plus live performances from Faith & Majesty and Pearl Charles, both recorded exclusively for BTRtoday.
