‘Avengers: Infinity War’ broke records at Paradise Cinemas

More than 10,000 people watched the movie since its advanced screening last Wednesday, April 25, through to the weekend.

Arriving with unprecedented excitement, mystery, and anticipation, “Avengers: Infinity War” dropped to a record-shattering sold-out crowd, creating a new milestone in PNG cinema history.

All sessions last Saturday were sold out and Sunday sessions did very well too.

This marks the biggest-ever opening weekend in Paradise Cinemas since it opened in 2012.

Reignite your passions at the Cinemas

Rachel Kramer Bussel, an author on CNN, is one who politely argues otherwise.

“Yes, there's two hours of silence, but there's also making the plan to meet up, waiting for the movie to start, eating the popcorn, dissecting it afterwards, all of which can give you insight into what a guy is like and giving you something other than yourselves to talk about.”

So keeping our promise to source out “love havens”, Loop PNG lifestyle, stopped by at the Paradise Cinema.

You cannot deny the cinemas is definitely a spot for lovers.
