In my last post, I talked about all the geeky goodness coming up this year, with movie premieres pretty much every month. “Captain America: Civil War” is one of the more highly anticipated events this year, and premieres May 6th. Some local Kansas City AMC Theatres – Ward Parkway, Town Center, and Studio 28 in Olathe – are hosting “The Ultimate Captain America Marathon” the previous day on May 5th. Read on to find out what’s included!
The marathon will include showings of “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Marvel’s The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, followed by the “Captain America: Civil War”premiere. As a part of the package, you’ll also get a special event lanyard, a “choose your team” medal and an exclusive pin.
In May 2012, when the first Avengers movie premiered, AMC also hosted a movie marathon where they played each of the individual superhero movies, leading up to the Avengers premiere. My husband and I took the day off from work, and let the kids play hooky from school to spend the day geeking out as a family. It was so fun to spend the whole day immersed in superhero-ness, and sharing the experience with an entire theater of other aficionados. This Captain America event is sure to be another epic fun-fest!
