    This.

    It would be extremely tiresome experience at home, that's probably around 24 hours of movie time. Now imagine doing that in front of a huge screen with some serious sound blasting around you.

  • they're showing it at the city's mega screen... a screen 3 times the size of a normal screen... and deathly hallows part 2 is in 3D =D

  • Maybe I'll try watching one movie a night for the week leading up to it. I've been giving the books a fourth run for about a month and a half, and I'm about halfway through Goblet of Fire, so maybe I'll manage to wrap everything up in mid-July.

  • I can see the appeal for a keen fan - plus it would give you a good refresher on characters and story - and probably easier to spot the plot flaws between the movies (considering they had to omit quite a few subplots from the books).

    However, 24 hours straight of movies in a cinema is very bad for your body/mind/soul/bladder/neck/bowels/sanity. Doing the 12-hour Lord of the Rings Marathon is bad enough without being able to pause for loo breaks.

  • It needs to be organized properly, then it could be quite awesome to do something like this.

  • The theatre near my house is showing the first movie one week, then the second during the following week and so on until the release of Part 2. I couldn't imagine sitting through them all in one go.

  • I would say there would be an interval of sorts between films, maybe half an hour between sessions? I don't think Australia has a marathon like this, just the one a week thing. I do plan to do a complete run through of all the films when part 2 comes out on DVD (which I'm guessing will be some time around Christmas).

  • The Imax in London is showing two over night marathons of the harry potter films. I think it would wuite fun going just to see how long I last :)

    I think they generally have a 20-30 minute break between films... It wouldn't be possible to survive it otherwise...
