Royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to be screened in US cinemas

Movie company Fathom Events is to air the arrivals, ceremony and post-wedding celebrations.

It is the first time American cinemas have screened a full Royal Wedding.

Denver-based Fathom has joined BritBox, the subscription service from BBC Studios and ITV, to provide the ad-free experience.

Punters will pay £7.38 for a seat to watch around 3½ hours from Windsor Castle.

Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said: “There’s something special about seeing history unfold.

“The fan response has been so positive to date that we have added more theatres for the broadcast.”

BritBox President Soumya Sriraman added: “A Royal Wedding has never before been screened in movie ­theatres, but we believe an event as monumental as this is fit for the big screen.”

America’s leading broadcasters are all sending over huge crews to London to provide week-long coverage of the event, before all-day broadcasts on Saturday.
