Mark your calenders, if you haven’t already, and clear your whole day of any productivity. On Thursday May 2nd, AMC Theatres will be showing an Iron Man Marathon! The event starts at 1:00pm, begins with Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and The Avengers. At 9:00pm, will be the premiere of Iron Man 3. So grab your friends, kiss your family goodbye and if you got toddlers, leave them with a babysitter that goes cheap on the overtime. Bring a camelback full of cherry cola and a satchel full of candy. Put on your favorite Iron Man tee, oh, and don’t forget your shit bucket, because you probably won’t want to get up. Well, maybe you will during Iron Man 2. For everyone else that doesn’t want in on the awesomeness, you’ll have to wait until Friday, a whole twelve hours later from the premiere.
As an incentive, The Avengers and Iron Man 3 will be shown in 3-D, and AMC will be giving you a choice between four different 3-D spectacles, an Iron Man lanyard (jealous) and AMC rewards cash, so you can buy half a ticket on your next visit.
But if you’re a cheap bastard like me, you’ll already have all the movies and make a day of it at home, with home cooked goodies and good people all around you. Super Bowl, eat your heart out.
