AMC Theatres Responds to Unprecedented Demand with Record-Shattering 10 Million Seats and 58,000 Screenings of “Avengers: Endgame” This Weekend
To accommodate never-before-seen demand, "Avengers: Endgame" will play approximately 58,000 times at AMC Theatres this weekend, blowing away the previous weekend screening record by more than 10,000 starts. Nation’s largest exhibitor has put approximately 10 million seats on sale between Thursday night’s opening and Sunday night.
Leawood, Kansas (April 26, 2019) – AMC Theatres, the largest theatrical exhibitor in the United States and the world, today announced that in response to eye-popping advance sales for “Avengers: Endgame” and having just set an all-time record for Thursday night box office sales, the Company has shattered its previous record for single-movie screenings over a weekend. The approximately 58,000 “Avengers: Endgame” showtimes that AMC is programming from Thursday night through Sunday ensures that millions of tickets remain available for movie fans this weekend.
The 58,000 show starts this weekend is 10,000 more than the previous record weekend, held by the opening weekend of “Avengers: Infinity War” in 2018.
This gives moviegoers approximately 10 million possible AMC seats in which to watch “Avengers: Endgame” on its opening weekend. This represents another record for AMC.
“With wildly enthusiastic critic and fan reviews, interest in “Avengers: Endgame” has continued to grow beyond even the most optimistic projections. AMC wants everyone to be able to participate in this national cultural event of seeing “Avengers: Endgame” now on the big screen. So, at AMC Theatres, we have set aside approximately 10 million seats and 58,000 showtimes for this historic event,” said AMC CEO Adam Aron. “AMC has dedicated more seats and more showtimes behind this film’s opening than for any other movie in our history. While ticket sales to date have been incredibly robust, we still have millions of available seats for those making last minute decisions to go to the movies in theatres this weekend and share in the euphoria.”
