Advance tickets to X Men 2 and The Matrix Reloaded

New Zealand cinema goers have rare opportunity to purchase advance tickets to X Men 2 and The Matrix Reloaded.

Hoyts Cinemas NZ Ltd will go on-sale for tickets to X Men 2 and The Matrix Reloaded on Thursday 17th April, to meet the much anticipated demand for these pictures. The film industry is expecting record level admissions to both of these films based on the strong performance of X Men and The Matrix throughout New Zealand. To cater for demand Hoyts have ensured maximum session times during the opening to deliver patrons maximum flexibility and seating capacity. Traditionally tickets go on-sale two days prior to the opening of a film on a Thursday. However the level of customer queries received via, through our cinemas and phone lines, has lead to the decision to release tickets well in advance of release. By purchasing tickets in advance patrons have the opportunity to beat the crowds on the opening weekends and therefore secure block seats together with their friends and family.

Both of these Hollywood blockbuster films will be playing throughout Hoyts cinemas nationwide.
