Movies being released this October in the theaters


Marjorie Amaral, Editor

After many months, closed down theaters are opened in the beginning of September following social distance guidelines. Many ILS students always used to go to the movies before corona and they missed it.

“It had been almost seven months that I didn’t go to the theaters and I finally went last week and felt like it was my first time,” said senior Andrea Vasquez. “I didn’t realize how much watching a movie in the theaters impact you afterwards I’m happy they opened theaters again.”

These are the movies coming to theater this October.
