At the end of this week, cinema theaters will become a sacred space for fans of Taylor Swift, whose cross-country ‘Eras Tour’ mesmerized millions. Now, the musical genius is taking over the big screen with her concert movie, ‘Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,’ which is all set to open the weekend with a staggering $100 million or more. Since the first leg of the tour wrapped up in August, Taylor Swift has been making headlines, partly due to her sweeping victory at the MTV VMAs, the forthcoming re-release of her ‘1989’ album, and her rumored romance with NFL player Travis Kelce.

While many artists have released concert films in the past, ‘this is a different beast,’ says Stephanie Silverman, the Executive Director of Belcourt Theatre in Nashville, Tennessee. ‘It seems that her intention is for this movie to be as much a concert experience as the live concert experience is for people. So, we’re definitely just going to relax and let people enjoy it in the way they want to. The audience will shape the culture in the theater, and we will go along with it.’

Jeff Kaufman, the Senior Vice President of Film and Marketing at Memphis, Tennessee-based Malco Theatres, anticipates a similar excitement as seen with this summer’s ‘Barbie,’ where many enthusiastic moviegoers dressed up for the theater and shared their experiences on social media. Dancing is welcome, as long as it doesn’t obstruct the theater aisles. Kaufman says, ‘Our theater staff regularly monitors screenings, and this film presentation won’t be any different. If issues arise, we will address them at that time. We expect our audiences to come, have fun, and enjoy the film, and our theaters. I don’t believe the film will be any louder than ‘Top Gun!’

As Swifties head to the cinemas in unprecedented numbers, Silverman kindly requests moviegoers to ‘be good’ to the theater staff and to always tip at the concession stand. Here’s what else you should know about the ‘Eras Tour’ movie, which starts screening on Thursday night:
