[Movie News] In Theaters This Week – December 25, 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 holiday season may be a little different this year, but there are still a slew of new movies coming out for Christmas this year.
