Despite more than 150 showings today, tickets are already limited for showings, especially after school lets out today. Majority of seats available at all of the area theaters are in the first three rows and some showtimes have only one seat left.
The showtimes around 7 p.m. are some of the most popular, with many having just one or two tickets for purchase.
Saturday’s seat options are just as limited, with only seven seats left for the 7:05 p.m. showtime at the Huber Heights Cinemark, all in the first two rows.

No local theaters have started 24-hour screenings of the movie, but some nationwide have to accommodate Thursday’s blockbuster release. The release in 4,600 theaters in the U.S. and Canada is the widest release ever, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Analysts have said the movie is likely to have a record opening weekend, hitting up to $300 million in its first four days.
