I wish somewhere in the US was holding a similar marathon! Anyone hear anything about US theatres having similar events?

Mall of America is having some type of marathon. AMC theatres said they will release info on what they have planed possibly on Friday or next week. I have AMC and Regal in my area. I tweeted Regal but have not got a response back yet. I think a lot of theaters are going to try to do some typr of marathon or at least DH 1 & 2 together that first night.

I am majorly bummed about this. Come on, why can’t we do this here in the US too? I’ve been sifting around for weeks looking for news of marathons.

Damn, am away the second weekend. I’m hoping that that means they might also do a back-to-back DH1 + 2. Have been looking out for news of that.

That’s so cool! Might possibly do it as an end-of-exams + birthday treat. Hmm… tempted.
