Movie Theaters, Live Venues Would Get Billions in Aid From Stimulus Package

Click here to read the full article.

About 60% of the movie theaters in the country — though not the major chains — would be in line for several billion dollars in grants if Congress can agree on a coronavirus stimulus package.

Negotiations on a bill were jumpstarted on Tuesday, when a bipartisan group of senators offered a $908 billion plan. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell circulated his own framework that would provide about $500 billion.

Both proposals include $15 billion for live event venues and movie theaters, aides on both sides of the aisle confirmed to Variety. So while the sides remain apart on several other issues, there is broad agreement about bailing out theaters, restaurants and music venues.

McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke on Thursday, as hopes rose that a deal could be achieved.

“Compromise is within reach,” McConnell said on the Senate floor on

Coronavirus live news: US records highest daily deaths since April; Obama, Bush and Clinton offer to get vaccines on TV | World news

Hundreds of thousands of masked students in South Korea, including 35 confirmed Covid-19 patients, took the highly competitive university entrance exam today despite the viral resurgence that has forced authorities to toughen social distancing rules.

About 493,430 students were taking the one-day exam at about 1,380 sites across the nation, including hospitals and other medical facilities where the 35 virus patients and hundreds of other test-takers in self-quarantine sat separately from others, according to the education ministry.

The annual exam, called “suneung,” or the College Scholastic Ability Test, is crucial for many students. Job prospects and social standing can often depend on which university you graduate from.

This year’s exam had been originally scheduled for November but were delayed due to the virus outbreak. Experts say on-and-off online classes have

Oscars 2021 In-Person Ceremony in Question After Live Zoom Broadcast Is Ruled Out

Ever since the pandemic became a permanent fixture for 2020 back in March, the film industry has borne the brunt of it, what with movie theatres shutting down, productions being halted in between, billions of dollars lost, and many other hurdles. While many productions, which had fortunately wrapped up shooting just before the pandemic hit, have opted for a digital release, the future of big events, namely the Academy Awards, is once again shrouded in doubts as contradicting reports question the format of Oscars 2021. 

As the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards went for a mixed format of live hosts, virtual nominees, and live-telecasting the whole thing, it was being expected that the 93rd Academy Awards will go for a similar route. But according to a recently released report by Variety, a representative from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and ABC has confirmed that there are no plans of

The cabinet minister has hailed the speedy approval of Covid-19 jab from Pfizer after the UK became the first country in the world to authorise it – paving the way for vaccination to begin next week.

ITV’s Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan suggested the healthy secretary reassure the British public by taking it on air, before Mr Hancock said: “Yeah, I’ll take it with you, Piers.”

The host said: “I’ll come to where you are anytime next week if we can do this. Let’s do it together, live on air. It would be powerful – it would send the right message.”

But Mr Hancock said he was not a priority vaccine candidate. 

“Well, we’d have to get that approved

Fortnite Galactus live event was like a mini-Marvel movie complete with AC/DC and a giant supervillain

The Fortnite Galactus event has come and gone and the planet-sized baddie has been relinquished, thanks to the help of players across the world. Videos are currently unavailable on Twitch and YouTube, likely because of a copyright issue with an AC/DC song that plays during the event, but I’ll do my best to explain it below.

The Fortnite live event, which took place at 1pm PT / 4pm ET / 9pm GMT, is the start (and end?) of the Nexus War. Players start on the infamous Avengers’ Helicarrier, with the terrifying head of Galactus looming on the horizon. Once the event officially kicks off, the absolute unit starts approaching the map.

Take a holiday trip back to the 1940’s with the Missoula Community Theatre during It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, Dec. 10-20.
