Kimberly Prather would disagree with you. She has discussed how aerosols can travel much farther than 6 feet on Stars in the House and multiple interviews with Dr. LaPook on CBS.

Prather suggests improving ventilation and using HEPA filters to clean the air. Have any theaters upgraded their ventilation systems? Are any theaters filtering air?

Here's a short bio of Prather:

Kimberly Prather is an American scientist who is an Atmospheric Chemist, Distinguished Chair in Atmospheric Chemistry, and a Distinguished Professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UC San Diego. Her work focuses on how human emissions are influencing the atmosphere, climate, and human health. In April 2020, she was elected to membership in the National Academy of Sciences in honor of outstanding contributions to aerosol chemistry. In 2019, she was elected as a member of the National Academy of Engineering. She is an elected Fellow of the American Geophysical Union, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

See the linked video below, especially at 26:40, 33:00, and 39:40 (where she talks about how covid hangs in the air).
