Believe it or not, it's been ten years of heading along to Hoyts on the weekend, smashing a large popcorn and a choc-top, and getting super jazzed up for whatever the latest Marvel film is. There's been 20 films since things started back in 2009 with Iron Man, and though they may be critically debated, nearly everyone can agree that they are at least entertaining. They give you that giddy blockbuster feeling that sticks around even when the lights go up and you realise you've got chocolate ice-cream all down your front.
The Sun Theatre in Yarraville is honouring that feeling — and the fact that it's been a decade of Marvel Studios solidly churning out bangers — by putting on a Marvel Marathon. Showing 17 of the films, the bonanza will run over four Saturdays, starting with Iron Man on August 25 and finishing up with Avengers: Infinity War on September 15. (It will skip Spider-Man: Homecoming, The Incredible Hulk and the new Ant-Man and the Wasp.)
You can purchase individual session passes online for $12, a full-day pass for $40–60 or go all out and cop a day or marathon pass from the box office for $150.
