The summer movie season is set to start with a squad of superheroes.
The Avengers opens across the country Friday, and anyone who is a fan of the series knows it is packed with some of Marvel Comics’ best-known superheroes. But hours before those heroes' big summer premiere, some of their earlier adventures will be presented on the big screen locally.
Movies 278 in Hiram, like many Carmike Cinemas theaters across the country, will present Marvel Super Hero Movie Festival on Thursday—an afternoon and evening of four Marvel films that will lead up to the midnight premiere of The Avengers.
The Avengers will begin at midnight, serving as the first opportunity to see the movie on its U.S. release day.
All five films are rated PG-13, and $35 will get you in to see all of them—that’s $7 per movie. But with a price like that and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see these films in a row on the big screen, you should get your tickets before they're gone.
So who is brave enough to go through all five films? Will you be calling into work sick with “Avengeritis”? Tell us if you’re planning to attend.
