    18:00 hour Standard, 18:30 3D and 19:30 3D showings at my local dump theatre are sold out for today. Tried buying tickets on-line for the 22:30 3D showing but the site must be getting hit hard because I wasn't getting through. They are using two of the six venues for this film.

    I am back from my IMAX screening. I enjoyed it a lot and would rank it 7th or 8th in my MCU rankings.

    It definitely had more of a feeling of a series finale of a TV show than a movie. Just like in series finales it required wrapping up many loose threads from the other episodes which causes it to loose focus and keeps it from being one of the best episodes of the series.

    I enjoyed meeting Adam but we didn't have much time to talk since I met him shortly before it was time for trailers to begin.

    This is the first big event movie I've gone to since my local theater added reserved seating. I'm not sure which way I like better since it lacks the experience of waiting in line and talking excitedly to other people going to the movie but makes up for it by not having to arrive as early as you would have and knowing where your seat is.

    I'm not sure where I'd rank it. I absolutely loved it, but so much of what I love relied upon or paid off things that came before. Infinity War works as its own movie. I'm not sure Endgame does. But I loved it, even with a brutal headache.

    100 percent. What I kept thinking back to was the "Justified" finale. This felt like the same kind of satisfying return on my investment.

    I really enjoyed meeting you too! I'm sorry I wasn't more talkative; my head was pounding and I was kind of out of it.

    I've been pretty vocal about my dislike for assigned seating, but in this case it was really nice to get there twenty minutes before the movie started and still have great seats locked in.

    Like you, I do miss the energy and camaraderie of standing in the lines, though.

    Crowd went nuts part way thru end credits. Apparently the Russos were at my show

    I had a pretty dead crowd for mine, and I saw plenty of phone lights going off throughout the movie with people texting or web surfing. I was satisfied with the film but it was frustrating to feel like I was in a room full of people who had better things to do. Really surprising for an IMAX 3D very first screening.

    I saw the very first showing of the first Avengers film in this same theater way back in 2012 and that had much more energy in the crowd than this did.

    It’s a trend I’ve been experiencing more and more in recent years. I don’t understand it.

    Maybe NYC is just dead for movies these days. I’m glad it’s not a global phenomenon.

    Wow! Such a great finale! The theater my wife and I were in was packed with a great crowd. Lots of cheering going on all the way through!

    It must be NYC then. I’ve seen I think 12 movies in theaters this year and had bad experiences each and every time with audience members. The technical quality of the theatres is high but the audience quality is not. I’ll say something that card carrying NYers aren’t supposed to admit: clearly we’re no longer the greatest city in the world! :D

    I am really happy to hear you all had enthusiastic crowds and I’m just a little jealous that I didn’t get to have that ambience as part of my experience.

    My audience was exceedingly enthusiastic. However those who know the theater I saw it at based on my picture knows it’s across the street from UCLA. So you can guess the demographic.

    Guess it will be some time before I see this. All showings for this evening were sold out in advance when I went to theatre for the 22:30 showing. I really do not want to have to go to a theatre an hour early to get a decent seat. I think this one is going to be packed for a while.

    My audience was also super enthusiastic, there was even a polite applause at the end! Seriously though I can't remember that happening before people clapping at the end of a film. The crowd was into though and the big moments got good reactions.

    There is something that I thought was a little extra special at the end of the main credits for the cast, so I would suggest staying through those (before the scroll.) But it's not a narrative scene.
