How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Opening Weekend

Dr Strangelove

When we show a movie for a week or more, people often avoid opening weekend, worried that it will be over-crowded. In fact, enough people tend to do this that the opening weekend is often the least crowded time to see the movie. So if you want to see Wonder WomanGuardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, or more recently Dunkirk as soon as possible, you should totally just go for it. It’s not likely to be any busier than any other night, and it might even be lighter, giving you a better chance to get “your” seat.

The same goes for the Friday nights that used to be crowded with middle schoolers (at least back when I was in middle school and high school). That’s calmed down quite a lot in the last ten (or twenty) years, so you can usually safely come Friday too without the candy line being totally clobbered by clusters of students.

So here’s to seeing all of those looking to see the big blockbusters as soon as possible on opening weekend at The Clyde.
