Avengers: Endgame is undoubtedly the biggest movie of the year and pre-sales records and fans' enthusiasm across the world are proof of the same. Many theatres are even booked to the capacity till the weekend. And now, much to fans' rejoice, as per Bollywood Hungama's report, major multiplex chains have received permission to screen shows round the clock in India.  So, yes, the movie will be shown post-mid-night as well.

Midnight and post-midnight screenings are quite common in foreign nations including Pakistan.  For the unversed, as per law, in India movies cannot be screen beyond midnight. But distributors of Avengers: Endgame, however, managed to get permission and this will bolster the movie's collections. 

A source from a major multiplex chain told Bollywood Hungama, “The permission came through today and we were informed of the same verbally. The permission, however, is given only for Avengers: Endgame. We are now sitting down to chalk the programming for these post-midnight shows. However, as of now, we are planning to have these shows only in A-tier cities and especially in IMAX and 4DX versions.” 

When asked film trade analyst Girish Johar to comment on the same, he said that this is something new and the same is happening precisely because of the huge craze. He also added how there were only a few movies which saw early movie screenings such as Gadar (it had early morning shows) and Rajinikanth movies. But this is for the first time this is happening on a wider scale. He also said that pan-India 24x7 screening for a Hollywood is startling as it is creating new rules at the Indian box office and the same is unprecedented.

He also added that capacity is already high by clocking 60 percent. The occupancies for late night shows will also be excellent. He also opined that this step can be taken for Bollywood movies as well if there is a huge demand.
