After a few hours ticket pre-sales for Star Wars: The Force Awakens have eclipsed all previous pre- sale records at Event Cinemas. 1,200 tickets were sold in the first minute (7.01am QLD time) growing to 10,000 tickets in 10 minutes with 30,000 tickets sold to date.
To put this phenomenon in perspective –
o The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 had sold 7,726 tickets at the end of the first day
o Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows Part 2 sold 7,258 tickets at the end of the first day
o The Avengers entire pre-sales tallied 26, 988 tickets – Star Wars: The Force Awakens exceeded that in 4 hours.
The soon scheduled to open Event Cinemas Pacific Fair and Springfield will offer sessions in the high impact, immersive sound experience of Dolby Atmos.
“We anticipated the ticket sales for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to break records, however the pace in which this film has achieved this is remarkable,” said David Seargeant, Group Managing Director AHL. “It is great to see the fans really embracing the last instalment of the Star Wars franchise and in particular purchasing tickets to the midnight screenings in our Vmax cinemas which offers the ultimate cinema experience and is the best way to watch this film.”
To meet the unprecedented demand, Event Cinemas will continue to open more and more sessions – including the highly coveted Gold Class and Vmax and 3D experiences.
