Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ticket bookings are now live in India — in select cinemas and formats. On Saturday at 11am IST, Disney India announced that tickets for the highly-awaited Marvel Cinematic Universe movie are now available in IMAX and 4DX only on ticketing partners BookMyShow and Paytm. As of now, I’m only seeing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness tickets for PVR Cinemas, including its own large screen P[XL] format in addition to IMAX and 4DX. Others — INOX, Cinépolis, and Carnival Cinemas — are expected in due time. Still, this is quite unprecedented as tickets for major Hollywood movies, let alone films from India, have never been made available almost a month in advance.
