THE midnight opening screening of Avengers: Endgame on April 25 at City Screen Picturehouse is so in demand, the York cinema has sold out one screen already.

"Endgame is selling faster than any film I can remember here," says City Screen marketing manager Dave Taylor.

Anthony Russo and Joe Russo's Avengers: Endgame will be shown at 00.01am that morning as the second part of an Avengers double bill, preceded by 2018's Avengers: Infinity War at 8.45pm. "This means that audiences can see the epic story unfold in full," says Dave. "The screening will be part of Empire magazine and Picturehouse’s joint 30th anniversary celebration hailing 30 adventurous filmmakers.

"This big screen event will gather film fans from across the nation to be the first to see the epic new instalment, while allowing them to relive the excitement and the dramatic ‘snap’ of the thrilling last Marvel movie. Will the remaining heroes avenge the fallen in Endgame? After a short interval between the two films, Picturehouse audiences will get the chance to find out."

In Infinity War, The Avengers were scattered and divided after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Now they must rally to confront the intergalactic warlord Thanos (Josh Brolin), who is hell-bent on collecting the six Infinity Stones he needs to bend reality to his will. In the new Endgame, the grave course of events set in motion by Thanos, wiping out half the universe and fracturing the Avengers’ ranks, compels the surviving heroes to take one last stand in this grand, three-hour conclusion to more than a decade of filmic storytelling.

Tickets for the Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War 2D double bill screening can be booked on 0871 902 5747 or at

This Avengers' marathon viewing experience will last 365 minutes in total, including the interval, with a finishing time beyond 3am.

The double bill will be shown on only screen; Avengers: Endgame will be screened in all three auditoria. "It looks like we could be heading for a complete sell-out," says Dave.
