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.
