A UK Cinema Is Screening Every Episode Of 'Game Of Thrones' Back-To-Back
Like everyone else, I'm a huge fan of Game of Thrones. In fact, I would usually go as far as to say that I'll never get tried of the series. But, with that said, I'm not sure I'd be able to make it through a recently announced screening of the HBO show.
The Prince Charles Cinema in London will screen all seven seasons back-to-back later this month. Just to give you a feel for it, that's a total of four days and nights, beginning at 7pm on 27 November with a screening of episode one of season one 'Winter Is Coming' and ending with the finale of season seven, 'the Dragon and the Wolf', at 4:51pm on 30 November.
A Monday to a Thursday, writing off an almost an entire working week, watching a total of 174,373 on-screen deaths:
The entire event will come to a close at 6:11pm and you'd better believe viewers will be seeing dragons in the sky when they leave the cinema and re-enter the real world.
In fact, a study back in May found that sleep deprivation causes the human brain to 'eat itself' so hardcore attendees might need a little assistance from the Lord of Light when the screening is through.

The good news, though, is that there will be evening dinner breaks of the marathon, during which pizza will be available from a pop-up stall. And fans that manage to make it through the entire screening will even go into a draw to win a year's worth of pizza.
The event is free in order to promote the release of the show's seventh season on download and Blu-Ray and you can grab tickets which give you access to the entire marathon via Prince Charles Cinema's Facebook page.
Here's how people reacted to the challenge:
This is bonkers! Who would survive?

This is hands down the most insane thing a cinema will ever do. Only if you presented it in 4DX could it be even more insane.

The initial batch sold out although more will be on sale again soon. There will also be a handful of tickets available on the door each day and announced on Twitter.
