The “new” SSPX knows it needs to nudge its followers to be more like the conciliar church which it seeks to join.
The “old” SSPX used to teach the faithful to never
watch TV or movies, and that Catholics should not even possess a TV.
The “old” SSPX used to teach that Catholics should not watch even religious videos or even Archbishop Lefebvre on TV.
All that has changed. The “new” SSPX now publishes movie reviews and recommends movies.
The N-SSPX now also publishes reviews of TV programs
The “new” SSPX now calls movies “good Catholic fun”.
Here is the longer quote:
In May of this year , 16 young people from Our Lady of Sorrows gathered for a day of good Catholic fun: breakfast, a hike, a movie and pizza.

The soft N-SSPX has slid so far from its former, principled stand, that the N-SSPX now recommends to its followers the Lenten resolution of refraining from cell phone use while at the theater during Lent. (This was the N-SSPX’s only resolution about movies.) Here are the “new” SSPX’s own words, proposing this Lenten resolution (#6 on a list of ten):
Ten Resolutions for Lent
6. ... I will avoid talking on my cell phone or having it ring: ... in theaters,
where the bright screen can distract others.
The N-SSPX’s Lenten resolutions do not suggest that Catholics should abstain from movies during Lent or even that they should watch fewer movies during that penitential time. Id.
As Catholics become liberal, they become lax. We see this in the “new” SSPX. As it becomes more liberal, it becomes laxer.
