“Tenet”will now be available at certain drive-in theaters despite an earlier suggestion that such a decision wouldn’t be the case.

What’s going on:

Warner Bros. will now allow “Tenet” to play at different drive-in theaters in the greater Los Angeles Area, as well as outdoor venues in Orange County, San Diego and the Bay Area.

This is a reversal from earlier this summer when Warner Bros. said the film would not be available at the drive-in theater, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

  • Warner Bros. said the film would only be available at drive-ins at locations where indoors theaters were open, which “was a strange rule that made a lot of movie fans angry, but it looks like Warner Bros. is already walking it back,” according to ComicBook.com.

Does the film work at a drive-in?

One of the reasons “Tenet” has made headlines is because Christopher Nolan wanted the film to be released on the big screen. But one writer for The Observer said the drive-in experience still works for this film.

  • “As reviewers (including Observer’s own Emily Zemler) have pointed out, ‘Tenet’ is very confusing, and seeing it in a less-than-optimal setting doesn’t help. But I never felt that the presentation was hindering my understanding of the convoluted story, or that the sound was muffled or unintelligible because the system (broadcast to my car’s radio over an FM frequency) was inadequate.”
