Avengers: Endgame is set to smash all box office records – and the Majestic Cinema in King’s Lynn followed this trend.

Both the special midnight curtain-raising screening from last Wednesday into Thursday and the weekend programme were sellouts of the three-hour Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster.

"It was absolutely manic," said assistant manager Lucy Curgenven of the much-awaited conclusion to this phase of the saga featuring Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and the rest against arch-villain Thanos.
