Pirates sells out shows in Albany

July 9, 2006

Albany -- The new 'Pirates' movie sets a Hollywood record, the most sales in opening weekend in history.

'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' should bring in 132-million dollars according to studio estimates Sunday. Albany's Wynnsong movie theater has sold out every show since opening night according to the general manager.

Pirates and people alike are still flocking to see the movie, and those who saw it on opening night say they've never seen so many people at the theater."Right when the movie started there had to be a cop in there, seating people for the movie, it was pretty interesting," said "Pirates" movie-goer Jacob Boyd.

"We've had very good turn out for every single show that's happened. Even for an added spin we've had people come up dressed as pirates, just like this gentleman right here who came up yesterday and blew us away with how accurate his costume was," said Wynnsong General Manager Peter Evans.

The Pirates sequel made three times as much money as the orginal "The Curse of the Black Pearl" during opening weekend in 2003. It replaces Spiderman for the all-time best debut.
