CNBC asks 'Can Hollywood Survive Coronavirus?'

For this week's Sunday entertainment feature, I'm continuing my focus on how entertainment is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with CNBC asking Can Hollywood Survive Coronavirus?

The coronavirus pandemic is putting a strain on all industries, including films. The call for social distancing shut down theaters and production, impacting all players from studios executives to freelance employees to consumers. Covid-19 will have a lasting impact on entertainment in the U.S. and around the world.
Of course, the answer is yes, but it's going to be rough until movie theaters reopen and film and TV production resumes.  Until both do, the hiatus will add to the record unemployment claims the U.S. is experiencing.  Keep this in mind when watching the political movies I listed two weeks ago, which I hope my readers are doing while staying safe at home.

That's it for this week's Sunday entertainment feature. Stay tuned for marijuana legalization news for 4/20 tomorrow.
