I went to a marathon of all three Lord of the Rings movies at a theater in Geneva, NY.  They showed the theater cut not the director's cut, but they made it an event with food, costume contest and some vendors in the lobby.  It was a long day but it was fun.  I don't know if I could do 6 films though, especially in a sold out theater where you're packed in with that many people.

It's a cool idea, but spending an entire day at the theater like that can be exhausting.  It's not like watching a movie while sitting in the comfort of your own home, where you can pause the action and take a break.  Sure, there will be some intermissions if you go to the theater.  But the sensory experience of the theater screen and sound can be kind of overwhelming. 

I saw a couple of movies in the theater in one day a few years ago.  IIRC, it was the first Transformers in the afternoon, and Harry Potter that night.  By the time I had seen the second film I was kind of wiped out.  To me, seeing 6 films in a row like that would not be enjoyable.  Especially when the film you really want to see is the last in the marathon.

Kind of defeats the purpose for me purchasing all the Blu Rays and an HDTV.

It was a mash-up of various 1970s and '80s Marvel movies and TV shows, along with "Iron Man" and "Black Widow" footage I'm unfamiliar with.  Thor appeared in one of the last TV Hulk specials.

I do not want to know this time.  I think I've looked up most of them through the years, but I want to be surprised this time around.
