This past weekend saw the biggest box office since Presidents Day 2020 (!), with "Black Widow" hauling in more than $80 million on the big screen, and the domestic theatrical climbing past $100 million.

If there was ever a time to check something out at a theater, and support films the way they should be seen, now's about perfect to see what's playing and what's on the way.

Check out the PSA below, which does a great job covering the big films currently in movie theaters, including "F9" and "Black Widow," plus the huge tentpoles on the way.

A lot of the studios are now experimenting with different release strategies to accommodate streaming. But we'd bet that most film fans will still agree on one thing. There's no way a tv and sound system matches a massive movie screen and in-theater Dolby Digital for sheer spectacle.

Here's to more big opening weekends ahead, and a thriving theatrical experience in general. Coming soon to the big screen: "Space Jam: A New Legacy," "Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins," "Jungle Cruise," "The Suicide Squad"...and later this fall, "No Time to Die," "Dune," "Eternals" and more.
