Appropriately billed as The Cinematheque’s 24 Hour Movie Marathon, the event is described by organizers as a “sleep-be-damned challenge that only the most seasoned cinephiles dare tussle with.”
They add that “as per usual, a carefully crafted, super-secret lineup of films will be served — a medley of forgotten gems, arthouse hits, and WTF curios from the four corners of our spinning globe.”
The 19-plus event will include prizes, complimentary craft beer, and tasty treats. For attendees, blankets, pillows, and ” tip-top hygiene” are recommended.
The Marathon is a fundraising event for The Cinematheque, and helps to support its year-round programming and award-winning education workshops.
More details around the event are available on The Cinematheque’s website.
