NEW YORK, July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- When Screenvision teamed up with Hasbro Studios and Shout! Factory to bring the full-length feature, My Little Pony Equestria Girls to cinemas across the U.S. and Canada beginning June 16 they had great expectations. Those expectations have been exceeded, with packed houses and numerous sell outs by exhibitors in major markets, leading partners to add more showings in both the morning as well as evening times, giving fans more opportunities to experience the film in theatres.

"We're happy for Hasbro Studios and Shout! Factory, and together we are proud of the marketing and social media efforts that have made this offering such a hit with theatre-goers," stated Darryl Schaffer, Screenvision's Executive Vice President, Operations & Exhibitor Relations. 

"We have screened similar animated family films before and never had this level of attendance," added Jenn Rustin of UltraStar Cinemas, based in southern California. "It exceeded expectations and we were pleased to have such a strong turnout of guests who thoroughly enjoyed the movie."

Synopsis: My Little Pony Equestria Girls is a brand new full-length feature introducing a whole new dimension into the world of My Little Pony. When a crown is stolen from the Crystal Empire, Twilight Sparkle pursues the thief into an alternate world where she transforms into a teenage girl who must survive her biggest challenge yet…high school. With help from her new friends who remind her of Ponyville's Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy, she embarks upon a quest to find the crown and change the destiny of these two parallel worlds.
