AMC Theatres set new single-day U.S. attendance record on Saturday.

AMC Theatres announced setting new records for its theatres in the United States. AMC confirmed that it set a new single-day U.S. attendance record on Saturday, as well as twice setting new single-day Food & Beverage revenue records in the U.S., doing so back-to-back on Friday and again on Saturday. With AVENGERS: ENDGAME on its way to demolishing the previous opening-weekend domestic industry box office record, it also helped fuel an all-time single day attendance record at AMC on Saturday with more than 2.6 million tickets sold. This easily outpaced the previous single-day U.S. attendance record for AMC set during the opening weekend of BLACK PANTHER, just fourteen months earlier in 2018. AMC started the weekend on Friday with a new single-day U.S. F&B revenue record of more than $13M. That record lasted all of one night, before it was shattered again on Saturday, with more than $15M sold. AMC doubled its previous record for single-day mobile F&B pre-orders, through the mobile app and website. A record-number 19 AMC locations were open continuously around-the-clock this weekend from Thursday morning through Sunday night. The 63,000 AVENGERS: ENDGAME showtimes this weekend is 16,000 more than the previous record for a single movie on opening weekend. AMC also put a weekend-record nearly 11 million tickets on sale from Thursday through Sunday for AVENGERS: ENDGAME. Demand for AVENGERS: ENDGAME was so strong that AMC added more than 5,000 last minute showtimes this weekend, above and beyond its already ambitious and record setting plan announced on Friday morning.
