Eras Tour: The film documents one of the six sold-out shows Swift performed at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California over the summer

Eras Tour, a documentary film showcasing Taylor Swift’s sold-out shows at SoFi Stadium in California, is set to premiere at the AMC theater in The Grove. The venue is reportedly dedicating all of its 14 screens to the musical documentary, accommodating 2,200 of the singer’s fans. However, the fans who received invitations from Taylor’s team remain unaware of the event’s details and schedule until 2 p.m. on the day of the premiere. The red carpet guests will arrive at the mall at 6 p.m., with the film starting at 7 p.m. Security personnel will be in force to ensure the safety of everyone. Although it was uncertain whether Taylor would attend, the massive security arrangements implied that the pop star might make an appearance. The AMC theater will benefit from the sold-out showings, but smaller businesses will close for the day, with Rick Caruso, the mall’s owner, compensating them for lost income. Evidently, Taylor has already earned $100 million from presales alone. The film is expected to have a significant opening-weekend gross, with some analysts predicting it could surpass the Barbie movie’s $162 million earnings. Interestingly, Taylor negotiated directly with the AMC theater chain to distribute Eras Tour, bypassing the usual middlemen. The film won’t be eligible for AMC’s A-list subscription plan and is more expensive than regular tickets, further increasing the theater chain’s and Taylor’s revenue.
