Avengers: Endgame fever grips India, Mumbai hall to screen show 24X7?
The craze for Avengers: Endgame has crossed borders and in India it is on a record breaking spree even before its release. The unprecedented buzz around the movie has forced cinema hall owners to arrange shows even at dead hours of the night to cater to the demands of the movie goers.
According to a report on Bollywood Hungama, the film might be screened for 24x7 in India given the supremely high demand for it. According to the report a multiplex chain has recieved special permission to screen the film post midnight across India.

A new show for 3:20 am is now open for bookings in Mumbai’s Carnival IMAX in Wadala, says the report.
A source in the report has been quoted as saying, “The permission came through today and we were informed of the same verbally. The permission however is given only for Avengers: Endgame. We are now sitting down to chalk the programming for these post-midnight shows. However, as of now, we are planning to have these shows only in A-tier cities and especially in IMAX and 4DX versions.”
The advance booking for the movie is underway and the first day shows of the movie in almost all the multiplexes across metros is housefull for a April 26 release. Over 10 lakh tickets have already been sold and the number is only increasing by the minute.
