Yesterday I attended the Ultimate Captain America Marathon at a local Regal theatre! It was a 5 film marathon featuring Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Winter Soldier, Age of Ultron, and than Civil War! This post will mainly be about the marathon itself and not Civil War thoughts. I honestly need to see it again to gather all my feels. But yeah, about the marathon! I’m so glad I was able to attend. Originally they weren’t bringing it near me since it was more than 3 films, so when they announced they a local Regal would be doing it, I snatched up tickets faster than Pietro runs. I was so excited to see some of my favorite films again on the big screen, especially Winter Soldier!
We got to the theatre about an hour and a half early. Based on the Star Wars marathon, we knew the earlier the better. Turns out the theater wasn’t *as* prepared and we didn’t end up getting seated until 30 minutes before The First Avenger started. Once in, we got comfy and prepared our feels for an entire marathon of Captain America! I really loved seeing The First Avenger on screen again cause Bucky/Cap/Peggy feels. I always seem to notice something new, mainly character development. I will admit, I did fall asleep for like 10 minutes at one point due to only have 2 hours of sleep beforehand. Sorry, Cap!
Next was The Avengers which is always a classic, than Winter Soldier (which I was most excited about), Age of Ultron (gets better with each viewing), and than CIVIL WAR! I think I enjoyed seeing Winter Soldier on screen the most out of them all mainly cause it’s my favorite MCU film and Bucky. But than Civil War happened. I’ll save all my Civil War thoughts for later cause I have so many, but I will say that the marathon went by really fast. Star Wars felt like it went on for forever (in a good way), but this time it felt as if we’d just arrived by time we’d left. Which I guess is a good thing, but I honestly didn’t want it to be over with. It was just so much fun! I really hope they do another marathon for the next Cap film cause I’ll so be there. Oh and did I mention that there was a merch stand at the end of the film? No? Cause they had exclusive merch! I may have got a few things. Oh and the theater even had some popcorn buckets and a cup!
All in all, it was a perfect day. I really enjoyed spending the day with all my MCU friends. I just really need to go see Civil War again. And again. And again. Also I need Infinity War and Black Panther ASAP. Now to figure out how to write up my Civil War thoughts… Hmmm…
