While almost half of the world runs a temperature with the virulent pandemic’s effect, people in the less affected countries are having a fairly better time. But the economy can run in complete efficiency only when the whole planet works together to keep the trade going. However, not much of that is possible today since the strings that play a crucial part has been detached for obvious reasons. The existing population needs a path to escape the stresses piling up in this difficult time. Entertainment is now being offered only on the small screens, allowing the people not to visit their favorite place for a night of fun. At the start of this decade, some entertainment forms stay forbidden while a few others save the day. Let us look at the accessible and non-accessible forms of entertainment in 2020.

Movies used to be the most common and easiest form of entertainment, which is now at stake with the restrictive measures brought to the shooting of movies. The magic of this form of entertainment is that it finds a balance to provide the audience with pure art. With more than 70% of the theatres in the world closed even today, people around the world can watch new releases on Netflix and other OTT platforms. Accessibility is, therefore, dual for movies with the incorporation of convenience into the experience of watching them.

With the clubs closed for more than 3-4 months now, open mic nights would be the last thing to be hosted anywhere.

It is surely a great form of entertainment, but no open mic events are possible with the current restrictions.
5. Sporting Events
