Can you stay awake for more than 28 hours straight?

Because that’s how long the Avenger: Infinity War Movie Marathon will last – from 7.30am on April 24 to 11.30am (approximately) on April 25. It’s the ultimate test of superhuman dedication and endurance and only the most devout Marvel fans will be up for this marvellous (pun intended) ten movie screening. You’ll come away from it being a superhero – a true blue Marvel superfan.

Three square meals will be provided for the screening (you should have your breakfast before coming though), in addition to plenty of goodies and activities. The marathon screening will be held at GVmax, VivoCity, home to one of the widest screens in Asia at 22.4 meters (two bus lengths) with a seating capacity for 602. But the question still remains – how should you prepare for the screening?

Here’s our complete guide for preparing for the Avengers: Infinity War Movie Marathon. Follow our instructions and you’ll be able to make the most out of your movie marathon experience!

1. Personal hygiene

Although you’d be in air-conditioned environment for the entire session, you might still perspire at some point or get food stains on your clothes. So you should bring an extra set of clothes (or a t-shirt, at the very least) to change into should the need arise. If you’re the sort who puts on deodorant every morning, then there’s a good chance you’ll need to during the marathon. Finally, bring your toothbrush and toothpaste along. Your teeth will thank you – but more importantly, brushing your teeth will perk you up when you’re tired. You could ply yourself with coffee and soft drinks all night long, but having a different array of options to keep awake and alert is great.

  • extra set of clothes
  • dedorant
  • toothbrush and toothpaste

 

2. Eyecare

After hours of staring at a screen, your eyes are probably going to be a bit bleary. So it’s a good idea to bring some eyedrops to soothe them when the need arises. If you’re wearing contact lenses, it’s probably best to bring your contact lens solution, contact lens container, and spectacles too. Most opticians would advise that you don’t wear your contact lenses for more than eight hours at a go, so you might want to take them off halfway and switch to regular spectacles if need be.

  • eyedrops
  • contact lens solution (optional)
  • contact lens container (optional)
  • spectacles (optional)

 

3. Technology

Let’s be honest – what’s the point of attending a movie marathon (or any sort of marathon, for that matter) if you don’t post about it on social media? But if you have an iPhone, it’s likely that it’ll run out of juice before the movie marathon ends. So remember to bring a fully charged power bank and charging cable. This means that, yes, you need to start preparing on 23 April (to charge your power bank). You’re also going to want to look up information or references that you’ve suddenly noticed in this movie marathon, and your eyes are going to be pretty tired – so bring along a tablet so that you can Google all your questions in (relative) comfort.

  • fully charged power bank
  • charging cable
  • tablet (optional)

 

4. Sleep stuff

If your body needs some rest – don’t fight it. Take a power nap if you have to, since you’ll want to be all bright and ready for the final film, Avengers: Infinity War. (You should also be awake for Captain America: Civil War, which is the fifth movie to be screened in this marathon, at 7.30pm on April 24, as the events of Avengers: Infinity War continue from the events in that movie.) Although GVmax seats are pretty comfortable, it’s hard to go to sleep with a movie playing in the background. So pack a pillow, blanket, an eye mask, and earplugs. The pillow will also come in handy during the actual screening itself, should you need to hug something during the exciting scenes.

  • eye mask
  • earplugs

 

5. General comfort

The cinema might get cold, so bringing along a jacket is advised (especially if you don’t have additional natural padding on your body). Bring some cash along as well – if you get hungry during the screening, you can always head down to the popcorn counter for a snack, which will be open 24 hours during the movie marathon. You should also bring along a water bottle, just in case you get thirsty.

  • jacket
  • cash
  • water bottle

 

6. Backpack

And finally, you should bring a backpack to put everything in – even the ladies! A backpack is easy and convenient to carry around, which you’ll be grateful for during the last stretch of the movie marathon. It’ll also come in handy to put all the goodies you’re going to get from the screening, such as the Movie Marathon t-shirt, the Avengers: Infinity War movie collectible, and other Marvel figures you might be inspired to buy.

Are you ready to catch the Avengers: Infinity War Movie Marathon? In case you’re wondering, there’s a very specific reason why the ten movies were chosen. You see, in Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos the Mad Titan seeks omniscience by assembling the Infinity Gauntlet. In order to do so, he must acquire all six Infinity Stones – which have already appeared in different movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! That’s what the movie marathon is for – to remind you of all the origins of the Infinity Stones.

Here they are:

  • the Space Stone: known as the Tesseract in the first Avengers movie, then seen later on in Thor’s vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and finally stolen by Loki in Thor: Ragnarok
  • the Mind Stone: as seen in Loki’s staff in the first Avengers movie, then used to create Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • the Reality Stone: currently in the possession of the Collector, who makes an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy
  • the Power Stone: known as the Orb in Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s currently in the possession of the Nova Corps
  • the Time Stone: known as the Eye of Agamotto in Doctor Strange, who currently holds it
  • the Soul Stone: mentioned in Doctor Strange, although its current whereabouts are unknown

 

See you at the Avengers: Infinity War Movie Marathon!
