I really love movie marathons. I know it’s a long time to sit on your ass but it’s just really fun to watch the movies with other fans, play some trivia, and get some cool swag. In the past I’ve done the Avengers marathon, an Iron Man marathon, and a Captain America double feature. I missed the really big one they did last year. I had just gotten back from London/C2E2 and it wasn’t playing near me. I was pretty bummed about it. That’s why when I heard there was going to be a Captain America marathon attached to Civil War, I got really excited! I kept stalking all the different theater chains, waiting for something to pop up. I tweeted AMC to ask about it, and they said they were! Sadly though it was in Virginia which is too much of a drive. I then checked Cinemark and bingo!
Plus we get medals! I can’t wait. I am way too excited about the medals. Plus they’re offering special deals on food and drinks which is nice. It starts at 8:45AM but it’ll be worth it. Of course I’m not going alone. Deidre is coming along too! I’ll do my best to take photos of any cosplay that I see or anything else exciting. I plan on wearing my PJ’s because I’m a boss like that.
And because I’m a nice person, here are some links to other Captain America marathons:

One day I’ll make it out to LA for one of the Nerdist marathons. They always have crazy special guests and it looks like such a great time. Of course your local theater might be doing something too! Your best bet is to check directly with them.
