I haven't but I'm planning to this weekend. I want to watch The Avengers (which I've already seen but I wanna see it again because I think I might have missed a few things and I want to see if I can like it more) and Beauty and the Beast 3D (which I already have on Blu ray and seen a couple of times but I wanna see it on the big screen and listen out for other peoples reactions). I could just see one film and see the other one next weekend but I think there maybe other films in the future so I wanna tone down a little despite the fact that I'll be paying to go on the train and pay for 2 film tickets in one day but I still think it's worth it despite the fact that I've already seen one film and have the other at home and would watch for free but whatever.

My biggest single-day cinema accomplishment was in 1997 when I saw all three original Star Wars films in the theater back-to-back-to-back. That was a long day at the theater, but when you're 16, you can survive on having movie concessions for lunch and dinner. :)

Since then, I've pulled a few double-headers. I know on an off-day at a church conference I went to a couple of times, both times I spent the day at the nearby theater.

Depending on the theatre you could just buy one ticket (or none). I haven't done it before, but I snuck a foot long sub into a movie one time

Just remembered I have. I saw spiderman 2 and garfield at a drive in theatre.

A local cinema used to show double features on a Sunday afternoon.

Quite a few cinemas had a Twilight marathon for Breaking Dawn (Pt 1). This consisted of all the Twilight films, with Breaking Dawn starting just after midnight on its first day of release.

I went to a late night horror marathon (4 horror films starting around 23:30). I bailed after the third film as I had run out of energy.

I saw both The Exorcist and Ronin on DVD on Sunday. Talk about two very different films!

Back when I was a young kid, my father would run the projectors for some extra money, and I would get to go to the movies for free instead of paying for a babysitter. I really enjoyed that. I think I got an early start on sex ed by getting to sit through some R rated movies that I had no business seeing at my age.

I don't think I ever did that and the last movie I saw in the theater was Saw 3d in 2010.
