I was tweeting up a storm during this year’s movie marathon. If you missed it, I’ve embedded all my tweets from that day (and evening, and morning) below. This was first live tweeting of a public event like this. I hope you enjoy it.
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.

I love caffeinated beverages at my movie theater outings, and I rely on them when I’m doing a 24-hour movie marathon. But what goes in, must come out. What should I do if i need a movie marathon pee break? You can’t pause the movie theater! Thank goodness we now have an app for that. Say hello to RunPee!
Everyone who has a bladder and watches movies needs to download RunPee for their mobile device. RunPee tells you exactly when to take a pee break for a given movie. No need to guess if the next scene is going to be boring or not!
The RunPee app provides:
A brief movie pee summary, which describes the general pacing of the movie
Specific pee times, including the number of minutes you’ll have to dash to the bathroom, a line of dialog to cue you to leave, the number of minutes into the movie the break appears
Vibrating peetime alerts
A visual timer to next peetime
Synopsis of what you missed during your pee break
You have to synchronize the app’s timer with the beginning of the movie (i.e. the fadeout of the first production company). But after that, you can rest assured that you’ll know the optimal time to dash out of that theater.
The founder of the company keeps their movie database up-to-date with his family and a few other contributors. This is a fun scrappy app company. I salute them for their brilliant product. I will be enthusiastically using it at this year’s Hollywood Nights Movie-Thon!
We can’t answer that question with certainty, since it is ultimately up to what each particular theater purchases and for how long. However, we can establish probability based on typical movie performance. According to this article, virtually no movies run shorter than two weeks, an average movie plays in theaters for four weeks, and some may go longer if they perform well.
So, based on these two sources, I give you: what will definitely probably maybe be playing at Hollywood Nights Movie-Thon 2017!
Highly Likely Playing
The following movies will be released on November 10th or no more than two weeks before.
