International cinema chain AMC Theatres is going to screen Avengers: Endgame round-the-clock for three days because of the high demand for pre-sale tickets.
“AMC guests have already purchased more tickets to AVENGERS: ENDGAME than we’ve ever sold in advance of a film’s release – and our first shows aren’t until Thursday evening.”Elizabeth Frank, EVP Worldwide Programming for AMC.
AMC is the largest movie exhibition company in the world with more than 1,000 theatres and nearly 11,100 screens across the globe.
So what are they doing for Avengers: Endgame?
- 29 AMC theatres are scheduled to be open around the clock Thursday through Friday
- An additional 18 AMC theatres are scheduled to be open around the clock Thursday through Saturday or Friday through Sunday
- An additional 17 AMC theatres are scheduled to be open around the clock Thursday night through Sunday, more than 72 hours straight!
Unfortunately, the selected cinemas are only in the United States as far as we can tell, but maybe Malaysian cinemas might still follow suit.
One thing’s for sure. Those scalpers who were selling tickets for hundreds of ringgit can go fly kites.
