-3 Malls and movie theatres need to make a comeback, amirite?

People have been saying this for a decade. Everyone saw this coming. The pandemic accelerated a process that was well under way. Getting anyone to act on it is another matter entirely.

No, shopping on amazon > shopping at the local mall. Unless you need clothes there is zero reason to shop at the mall.

Why? Other than nostalgia, you really didn't give any reasons. I enjoy going to the movies. But unlike back in the day when I could catch a matinee for 5 bucks, a movie venture involves driving 30 mins. Paying $10 for parking. $15 for the ticket, another $20 for snacks, to go sit in a theater where the temperature is never really right, hoping that the sound system is set right, and some asshat isn't talking/on their phone the entire movie. For the price of one ticket, I can watch many movies, in the comfort of my own home, with my own snacks, pause it if I need to go to the bathroom, and have practically the same experience. I hit the theaters for movies I really want to see, but for smaller, intimate films, I prefer to watch at home so I really can be immersed in them.
