You’ve got to love AMC Theaters. Much like they do with the Academy Award nominees each year, the theater chain is offering comic book movie fans of great endurance a chance to see all six Marvel films (Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers) on the big screen, one after the other, all on the same day. Well, two days if you count The Avengers being a midnight showing. That day would be May 3rd.
Tickets for the event are on sale at these theaters:
- 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
You can also buy tickets for The Avengers alone at those theaters, if there are any available. More participating theaters will be announced on March 16. Tickets for the Marathon cost $40 for the whole day, which comes out to an economical $6.67 per film. The film viewing orgy starts at 11:30 am.
Be forewarned! Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers will be shown in 3D, but it appears that you will be able to select from a choice of four commemorative 3D glasses.
