Taylor Swift Surprise Thursday Night Previews Not Selling Well as Kids Already Planned Weekend Shows


Taylor Swift and AMC may have miscalculated adding previews tonight at the last minute for The Eras Tour movie.

According to the AMC website, most theaters are only a quarter full with advance sales — or not sold at all.

The reason is “The Eras Tour” is three hours long. Tonight is a school night. Even if kids went at 6pm, that means being at the theater by 5:30pm and staying until 9pm. In the suburbs, that means an entire evening. Homework? Sleep?

Most of these tween girls have already bought tickets for the weekend. Unless there’s a big Walk Up energy tonight, tomorrow’s numbers may not reflect that predicted $100 million weekend.
