Find Out If You Won Our Avengers: Infinity War Trivia Contest

The lucky person scoring free tickets tonight is…


Spring has just begun to make its presence felt in Boston, but that doesn’t affect today’s Hollywood summer blockbuster season kick-off: the debut of Marvel Studio’s Avengers: Infinity War. In the latest chapter of the Avengers saga, Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America (to name a few) join forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to keep the evil Thanos from wreaking havoc on the universe.

To mark the movie’s opening weekend, we announced a trivia contest this morning. When it ended at 1 pm, the names of those who answered all of the questions correctly were entered in a drawing for two free tickets for a screening tonight, Friday, April 27, at AMC Loews Boston Common at 9 pm.

The winner is Ryan Sullivan, College of Arts & Sciences Graduate Division of Religious Studies program coordinator.
