The percentage of Americans who say they’d be comfortable going to a movie theater right now has bumped upward two points week over week to 46%, up steadily from a summertime low of 42% at the beginning of August. Comfort with going to a large public event (concert, etc.) has also climbed four points since early August, from 39% to 43%.

But overall, Americans are still slowly reemerging from the midsummer plummet in comfort that was likely due to the COVID-19 Delta variant. Comfort attending a theater is still 13 points off of its year-to-date high of 59%, while comfort attending a large event is still 14 points below its summertime peak of 57%.
