[Movie News] In Theaters This Week – October 2, 2020

Many theaters are still not open in the US. Some have had to close again due to health restrictions being put back in place or simply due to a lack of people coming in. While many big-name movies are pushing their release dates back even further, or choosing to premiere overseas first, a number of movies are still determined to make their way to theaters.

The season for scary movies is gaining even more traction this week, as there are three new movies to fit that bill this week. There is also a film about Winston Churchill’s group of female spies in WWII; a film about what happens when a couple goes to a cabin to unplug from the world, only to find it suddenly under attack; as well as a classic coming-of-age love story.
