Movie Theater Having A Nonstop ‘Game Of Thrones’ Marathon Is An Awful Idea
A movie theater in England is having a nonstop ‘Game of Thrones’ screening for the first seven seasons later in November, and that’s a terrible idea.
The Prince Charles Cinema posted the following on its Facebook page:
We welcome HBO UK’s award winning phenomenon that is Game of Thrones as we host a monumental marathon screening of ALL SEVEN SEASONS.
To mark the release of Game of Thrones: THE COMPLETE SEVENTH SEASON and THE COMPLETE SEASONS 1 – 7 BOXSET on Blu-ray™ and DVD, die-hard fans of the record-breaking show can view it all in its entirety on the big screen for the very first time for four days and nights. The non-stop, cinematic takeover will begin at 7pm on Monday 27th until 6pm on Thursday 30th of November 2017, when lucky Game of Thrones fans will be able to experience this unique one off event.
The event is slated to begin on a Monday and not end until Thursday night.
Look, I’m one of the biggest “Game of Thrones” fans you’re going to find, but this is ridiculous. Who possibly has enough free time to set aside four entire days to binge watch the series at a movie theater? I’d way rather just do it at my house over HBO Go than have to make the effort to get up and go to a theater. Nobody with any sense of self-worth is playing that game.
I’ve got all the beer, Mountain Dew, wings and pizza I could ever desire at my house. It makes less than zero sense for me to go anywhere else to watch Thrones. This is probably just happening because “Game of Thrones” is the only cool thing about England, and they want to celebrate they finally accomplished something interesting in the past decade. I totally understand that, but don’t expect me to be participating.
