The 12th Annual 24 Hour Movie Marathon 2011

Each year in New Zealand there is one weekend designed and dedicated for the most hardcore of movie lovers. They fly, bus and shuffle all the way from the deep south and the far north in an annual pilgrimage to see rare treasures on the big screen in Auckland.

As one of the last surviving 14-rank Wurlitzers begins to boom out movie themes, the jacked-up patrons begin their twenty-four hours inside the legendary (and some say haunted) Hollywood Cinema in Avondale with the 12th Annual 24 Hour Movie Marathon 2011.

Some of them will survive with only minor ocular damage while others are left with a crippling form of cine-dementia. A condition that forces them to endlessly spout snippets of dialogue from films no one has heard of. Classic films, 80s misfires, rare 70s exploitation and Hollywood premieres are all screened to an insatiable audience on glorious (and increasingly rare these days) 35mm celluloid.

Each year the cinematic endurance test that is the Annual 24 Hour Movie Marathon sells-out in advance, so movie lovers looking for the ultimate fix need to purchase tickets immediately.

The Annual 24 Hour Movie Marathon has had some exciting New Zealand premieres over the years including MONSTERS, RUBBER, ZOMBIELAND, LET ME IN, THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALICE CREED, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, 1408, ROLE MODELS, SAW, TEAM AMERICA, NAPOLEON DYNAMITE, DEVILS REJECTS, THE DESCENT, CRANK, KISS KISS BANG BANG and many more.

This year at the 12th Annual 24 Hour Movie Marathon 2011 we are extremely happy to announce that we will be premiering the hottest film on the movie geek circuit, the Edgar Wright produced and Joe Cornish directed; ATTACK THE BLOCK.
