PRESS RELEASE —
LEAWOOD, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– AMC Theatres® (NYSE:AMC), 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.

“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.
