To celebrate the upcoming release of The Avengers, AMC Theaters and Marvel are hosting a superheroic movie marathon on May 3rd. The Ultimate Marvel Marathon will feature six movies from the universe: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor in 3D, Captain America in 3D, and it will end with The Avengers in 3D. Whew. The event will start at 11:30am and continue on all day—all for a very reasonable $40.
Tickets will go on sale March 16th but only for select theaters. If sitting in a theater for that many hours sounds like you’re idea of a good time, here’s a list of participating venues:
- Boston Common 19 – Boston, MA
- Burbank 16 – Burbank, CA
- Downtown Disney 12 – Anaheim, CA
- Aventura 24 – Aventura, FL
- Empire 25 – New York, NY
- Garden State 16 – Paramus, NJ
- Downtown Disney 24 – Lake Buena Vista, FL
- Metreon 16 – San Francisco, CA
- Alderwood 16 – Lynnwood, WA
- Tysons Corner 16 – McLean, VA
I love the idea of these marathons in principle. You can bet that only hard core fans you can geek out with will brave the entire day, so you’ll have fun conversations in between movies. It’s also a notch in the belt, “I spent 10+ hours at a movie theater.” I get excited, and then I think about the movie theater seats. If you go, you’re braver than I.
