In Theaters: April 26, 2019

Avengers: Endgame takes over theaters across the globe this weekend, so it’s no surprise that there are no new Hindi movies opening in the Chicago area on Friday, April 26, 2019. Despite a somewhat lackluster opening weekend, Kalank carries over at the AMC River East 21 in Chicago, MovieMax Cinemas in Niles, AMC Niles 12 in Niles, Regal Round Lake Beach 18 in Round Lake Beach, AMC South Barrington 24 in South Barrington, AMC Rosemont 18 in Rosemont, Marcus Addison Cinema in Addison, Regal Cantera 17 in Warrenville, AMC Naperville 16 in Naperville, Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge, and AMC Woodridge 18 in Woodridge.

There’s a big caveat to the above list. In order to accommodate the huge crowds anticipated for Avengers, several theaters are showing Kalank only once per day — and at off-peak times. The Marcus Addison has the worst of those showtimes, running Kalank at 8:30 a.m. (and only through the weekend). The Cantera 17’s lone showing is at 10:10 a.m., the Round Lake Beach 18 at 11:50 a.m., and Seven Bridges at 4:20 p.m. All those theaters add shows starting Monday.

MovieMax carries over Kesari and The Tashkent Files.
