Revolutions Opens in 3,502 Theaters, with 59 IMAX Engagements

November 5th, 2003

The Matrix Revolutions opens today throughout the US and Canada in a block-busting 3,502 theaters. That includes an unprecedented 59 IMAX screens, marking the first time a major movie has opened simulatneously in IMAX and regular format theaters.

While anything over 3,500 theaters would be incredible just 2 years ago, that puts Revolutions a relatively modest 15th on the all-time list of widest openings (see the top 10), and about 100 theaters behind Reloaded's debut number.

That's a reflection of the relatively soft performance of Reloaded, after a great opening weekend, but won't be a deterrent to a huge fan base that has been waiting for the conclusion of a sci-fi classic. Expect packed theaters and long lines through the weekend.
