INTERSTELLAR to Screen in Select Theaters Three Days Early?

     September 30, 2014


Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until Friday, November 7th, but apparently some folks will be seeing it three days early because there are theaters in Los Angeles that are selling tickets to IMAX screenings beginning at 8:00pm on Tuesday, November 4th.

It’d make sense for Paramount to hold midnight showings the night before the big debut, but three days early is another story.  If this is the real deal, it’s surprising the studio hasn’t made an official announcement about this yet.  Hit the jump for more on these Interstellar early showings.  The film stars Matthew McConaugheyAnne HathawayJessica ChastainCasey AffleckMichael Caine, David OyelowoWes BentleyJohn LithgowEllen BurstynTopher GraceDavid GyasiMackenzie FoyBill IrwinTimothée Chalamet and Matt Damon.

When I conduct this search myself, I do get the exact same theaters, but every single showing is either listed in grey or listed in grey and crossed out, which could mean those theaters don’t sell tickets via or that the showings are completely sold out.  In First Showing’s screenshot, however, the times are listed in gold denoting that there are tickets available.  That screenshot had to have been taken at some point today and it seems unlikely every single one would sell out so quickly, especially without an official announcement, so perhaps the earlier availability was some sort of error.

Hopefully Paramount will confirm these early screenings and sort all of this out soon, but in the meantime, you can browse all of our latest Interstellar coverage using the links below:
