In the age present, securing tickets for the opening night and weekend of a new Marvel movie, especially one starring Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Stephen Strange), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch), and more, is one of the most vital aspects of a fan’s life.

Following the fiasco of every movie ticket website (Fandango, Regal, Cineplex, AMC) crashing upon the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home (2022), fans were wearisome of repeating the nightmare.

Nonetheless, it’s an uphill battle for many more Marvel fans at the time of writing, as many websites are still crashing and denying viewers from purchasing their own Doctor Strange tickets.

How to Buy Your Doctor Strange Tickets

Many have claimed that using a different device (phone rather than a laptop, etc.) and even utilizing a different web browser has aided in their purchasing of tickets, as well as using the official app of some companies, such as Regal (AMC and Fandango have been very difficult) to secure tickets.

It appears that AMC Theaters’ website and app are being the most difficult for fans when searching through reports on social media.

When securing tickets this morning through, I utilized the website rather than the app. Nor was I signed into any account, as many are reporting that the A-List status of their AMC account is preventing them from securing tickets. While it’s not impossible to purchase through AMC, it might be wisest to use a third-party such as Atom Tickets or Fandango if there’s only an AMC Theater near you.
