Tickets for "Avengers: Endgame" went on sale Tuesday morning, and it appears fans were so eager to get their hands on them, they crashed movie theater websites across the country.
Fans took to social media complaining of movie theater sites not loading, long wait times and other technical issues when they tried to buy tickets for the next highly anticipated "Avengers" film. The main AMC Theatres website wasn't loading at 8:45 a.m. People also reported problems with Fandango and Atom Tickets.
"It was only AMC Burbank 16 having issues, now it's absolutely EVERY AMC theater... your website is not even loading anymore. You need a bigger server," one Twitter user said.
Shout out to my sister Carissa for gettin END GAME tickets! & shout out to me for waking her up at 4:30am to remind her to be awake to get them! Lol AMC Dolby Theater!
The movie websites are crashing & people are waiting hours in a online "line" to purchase tickets! We are LUCKY!

Thanks @AMCTheaters for your subscription, but you severely failed this morning. Dropping your subscription soon because you "hope" your paying customers get their tickets, instead of trying to actively fix the issue. pic.twitter.com/UlLGCvsOTH

Atom Tickets shared a tweet boasting of their customer support after one ticket buyer said they used the site after Fandango didn't work. But they were quickly barraged with dozens of comments from users saying their technical issues persisted.
WHY DOES MY FANDANGO QUEUE SAY "THE LINE IS PAUSED." ARGHHHHHHHHHH

Neither Fandango nor AMC Theatres have shared any information on when websites may be operating fully again.
I’m just trying to get my @Avengers tickets. 🥵
