Is The Star Wars Marathon Too Much Of A Good Thing?


With the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18th, or 17th if you catch one of the early screenings, Lucasfilm and Disney have unleashed a plethora of in- theater exclusives and events for the fans.

From Regal theaters collectible tickets with new art every week,

to Cinemark’s Star Wars Themed 3-D glasses

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and Alamo Draft House’s printed pints.

But the biggest thing going on is the Star Wars Marathon Event.

The entire 6 movie saga back on the big screen leading up to the first showing of The Force Awakens. Now I, for one, am still toying with the idea of grabbing tickets for this epic day of Star Wars.  Seeing all the films in theaters again would be incredible but there is one thing that is holding me back. Do I really want to sit down in a theater for the entire day starting at 3 am?  Now ticket prices for the event are averaging around $60, so the price per movie is not to bad and some theaters are having reduced concessions for marathon ticket holders, but is that incentive to spend up to 20 hours in a theater? Of course you could purchase tickets and only show up for the original trilogy and save a few hours and the price per movie would still be pretty good. But is it worth it?

You could of course, if you own them (and if you don’t you could go buy them), pop the blurays or DVDs into the player and relax at home, then go enjoy the new film. Therein lies the question, is the marathon too much? Would you be able to enjoy the new film if you’ve been sitting for 15 hours in the theater already? Drop us a reply below or on Twitter to The Geek EZ and let us know your opinion, or if you are going and are you prepared to embark on the epic theater going quest you have chosen.
