The local AMC Movie
theaters are running a “Die Hard” Movie Marathon on St. Valentine’s Day, the
same day as the newest movie of the bunch opens at the theaters.
This could be something that AMC is doing around the country or even worldwide as far as I know. I only hope they do it again sometime so I can’t get off work to attend this awesome event.
I can only think of two other movie series that I would attend an all-day marathon to go watch them all back to back.
1. The Indiana Jones Movies
2. The Godfather Movies
I think it is hilarious that the newest movie in the series, “A Good Day to Die Hard” is opening on Valentine’s Day of all days. I’m sorry it just catches me as funny and makes me giggle inside. To be able to pay $35.00 dollars for five movies, plus you get a ‘Special’ Die Hard Poster and a commemorative lanyard for attending the event. I love going to the movies because growing up where I did they didn't have cinema style movies.
We had to wait until summer time for the Drive-in Theater to open to see movies. That’s how I saw Star Wars, Jaws, Jonathan Livingston Seagull and many other great memorable movies sitting outside in a lawn chair beside the car watching movies in the summer with my family.
To purposely sit all day in a movie theatre seems a touch insane to me but when I think of watching all five Die Hard movies back to back it gives me a shiver of excitement.
I am really sorry I am going to miss out on the opportunity to join in the craziness. Somebody at AMC is a freaking marketing genius!
YIPPEE – KI – YAY!
