    It's probably not being made a big deal out of because no one thinks this is going to go on for long.

    I don't think you understand how big those theaters chains are in the US. Where I live, they're almost the only places to see movies like IM3. If none of these theaters show IM3 then I will literally not be able to see it.

    Yeah those are the only chains in a reasonable location from me. But I cannot fathom that they won't have something worked out. Theatres have been hit hard with this 2013 slump, and they only make their money in the few peak seasons sprinkled in the year. Frankly, I don't think selling concessions amounts to much for the 10+ months in the year where business is at a standstill.

    I hope this doesn't result in even higher food prices. It's already like $10 for a hot dog. -_-

    I can't see this lasting a long time. Amc and regal make up the majority of theaters where I am in Houston, Texas. And most of the younger crowd goes to the amc theaters.

    WHAT?!? I don't understand why they'd do this.
    My kids won't be happy. The two theaters by THEM are AMC and Regal

    Disney's made some really STUPID moves the last few months. The other stupid thing was letting alot of the artists from the animation go.

    This is unfortunate.

    The cinemas closest to where I love are either local chains or non-chain. I can understand the frustration for those who have already purchased tickets.

    I agree with the above posts about prices: the economy is hitting the theaters hard. Anymore, I skip buying concessions, as they have the reached the same price as a film ticket (and when one is an unemployed student, they try to monitor their money tightly.)

    I'm fighting right now with Both AMC & Fandango for my money back I'm not taking any chances, with Fandango it's more of trying to switch my tickets to a different theater, but they are both being robotic with their answers ugh.

    These things happen a few times a year with the different studios, and they always work themselves out. Not just in America, either

    Um, I don't know who wrote that article, but that's either a total exaggeration or complete BS.

    You're talking about the three largest theater chains in the US. Nobody would turn away business like that.

    Yeah, everybody will be all smiles and gladhanding by May 3; but even if, for some unfathomable reason, the theater chains don't back down, Disney would likely end-around them and just go ahead and same-day release IM3 to PPV, Netflix, and what have you. Cut out the middle man.

    ZERO chance that they don't show Iron Man 3. ZERO. That said, glad my IMAX is a Carmike. :)
