    It was on 2 screens at my local 27 cineplex theater last weekend as well but I didn't even look to see if it was one of each or just two screens of 2-D. Thought it was good to just still be on two screens. :woot:

    I went to see XMFC yesterday as well, and Thor is still showing in both 2D and 3D at my local theater. I'm real surprised it's still holding a 3D screen.......

    I'm sure that when getting the 3D the theaters have to play the 3D if they have the 2D. They might not have a choice.

    An even $500K on Monday. It'll pass $170M today as it's only $375K away.

    $550K on Tuesday. Now at $170,174,428 domestic. Should do another million before the weekend for a 5-week total of $171M domestic. Factor in a 2-3M weekend and it'll be at $173-174M with only $6-7M to go to beat Wolverine domestically...which IS going to happen.

    If Disney wants to hold this film in theaters as long as they did Tangled then I could see it getting to 200M domestic in about another 3 & 1/2 months. I doubt they'll do that, though.

    Looks like Thor is losing it's 3D screen tomorrow at my local theater. It will be down to one 2D screen on Friday. Guess I need to go see it again. Lol!

    It's possible, but I think there is too much competition for screens with Green Lantern, Cars 2, and Transformers 3 (all multi-screen films) coming out in the next few weeks. Then, there's Captain America and Harry Potter 7, Part 2 in July. I would love to do a Thor-Captain America double feature day at the theater, but I seriously doubt that will happen.

    I've been wondering if that will be feasible, myself. Also wondering in a wider way whether the release of Cap might cause more people to want to go back and see Thor again one more time. But given the crowded movie season, I wasn't sure how likely it would be that Thor will still have much theater presence by then.

    Now THAT would be cool. I haven't been to a double feature since the early 70's

    Actually, I plan to do just that prior to seeing the Avengers next year. All the films should be out on Blueray by then.

    My last was in 2008 when I was able to still see IM and then go see TIH right after.

    They just might, you know how studios love crossing those benchmarks.

    But given the time period in question, I bet they won't. Tangled was able to hang on like that because it was the dead of winter and not much competition for screens was happening. This is the summer and the most competitive of this century so far. Theater owners just won't want to keep it since there's bigger fish coming in every week.

    I remember when I lived north of Chicago a few years ago that one IMAX theater near me had all THREE EXTENDED LotR films playing. I don't recall if it was one charge for all three films or what. But they had breaks basically half way through each film.

    Yeah THIS area I can't really see doing things like that.
    My town alone has two sets of multiplexes 12 screens in each and a big college near by and Walmart based here with Paramount DVD distributing offices for Wall world, and have never seen a double feature offered. :(

    lol I'm not SCA BUT I am a Renaissance Faire nut. I wouldn't be a bit surprised more SCA people haven't seen Thor.
