May 18, 2021 – Building on a successful partnership, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is once again teaming with Cinemark Theatres to showcase the upcoming DOUBLE OR NOTHING PPV event live in select theatres on Sunday, May 30, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
Fans around the country can experience the energy of DOUBLE OR NOTHING on the giant screen by purchasing tickets for $20 at Cinemark.com or on the Cinemark app. The highly anticipated event kicks off at 7 p.m. ET with an hour-long pre-show special, followed by the stacked main card matches at 8 p.m. ET.

“Cinemark did a great job showcasing our REVOLUTION event in March, and we’re looking forward to safely delivering another adrenaline-fueled evening for our fans next Sunday night,” said Tony Khan, CEO, GM and Head of Creative of AEW. “There’s nothing better than watching major wrestling events with other fans, and we’re thrilled to provide the camaraderie of
experiencing DOUBLE OR NOTHING on big screens across the nation.”
“It’s fantastic to be able to connect terrific content providers like AEW with innovative companies like Cinemark to have wrestling fans experience DOUBLE OR NOTHING in the comfort of a Cinemark Theatre with great food and beverage options,” said Joe Hand, Jr., President of Joe Hand Promotions.
Powell’s POV: $20 for the big screen experience sounds like a good deal, especially with the pay-per-view listed at $49.99 on BR/Live. Of course, I’ll be covering AEW Double or Nothing live as the show airs on pay-per-view on Sunday, May 30, but I’ll have to settle for my television rather than the big screen.
