This is a fantastic charity event and you should go! If you can raise a minimum of $150, you can watch whatever movies are scheduled for the theater that day (plus more in the overnight), get unlimited popcorn, pop, free lunch, free dinner, and a goodie bag of candy.

The also have a charity raffle every year with a great mix of prizes. I am still enjoying my CLF mug, sweatshirt, and chapstick one year later. Someday I’ll win that gift basket of meat and cheese….someday!

If this is your first time attending, check out my previous articles on the event itself and the movie-watching experience. Plus, I have articles on packing a movie marathon survival kit and how to stay awake for the entire movie marathon.

And just in time for this event, I have created Movie Marathon Find, a Windows, Mac, and Linux application that can take the theater schedule and create the perfect movie marathon schedule for you!

The app is still in beta, so do me a favor and download it, give it a try and send me your feedback. I’m hoping it’ll be ready for version 1.0 by the movie marathon!

In conclusion, I’m super-excited for the event and you can bet I’ll be there! I hope to see you there too!
