Avengers: Endgame ticket resales in Vancouver going for $1000
One-thousand dollars for a movie ticket seems absurd, but to some Craigslist posters, it is justifiable.
After tickets rapidly sold-out to the Avengers: Endgame premiere, movie-goers who missed out on the standard $18 ticket on Cineplex had to find other solutions. With tickets only available on the secondary market, prices are reaching astronomical numbers. One Craigslist posting for Cineplex in Langley is offering nine tickets for $1000 each. Another user is beckoning for those interested to send bids. “Make me an offer. I’m reasonable, but I’d like to make a bit of profit,” the post reads.
It was evident that fans have been itching for the arrival of Avengers: Endgame because when tickets went on sale Tuesday, the rush caused Cineplex’s website to crash. Regardless of the technical difficulties, tickets were snatched up quickly, particularly for the special premiere event. According to Atomtickets.com, in addition to allowing fans to see the film first, the premiere is offering “exclusive content, a collectable coin and a special event-only concession offer.”
Although some may balk at the hulk-sized prices, there is no denying the series’ popularity. All three previous Avengers movies rank within the top ten highest-grossing movies of all-time.
The much-anticipated fourth and final installment of Disney’s Avengers saga is set to open in Vancouver theatres on April 25th.
