Strictly For Movie Geeks

This is something pretty cool that AMC (Star Cinema) is doing next weekend. The question is...can you stand watching 11+ straight hours of movies?
They're going to show all ten Oscar Best Picture Nominees (five one day, five another day) in a row. Details.
A two-day pass is $60 and is good for all 10 films divided between both days. To make up for the insane bleacher butt you're gonna get, they're throwing in $10 per day in concession stand gift cards. You gotta over the course of 10 hours! A one day pass is $35 (available online and at participating theatres' box office)
Here's he schedule of films for the two-day event is as follows:
Saturday, February 19
11:00 a.m. Toy Story 3 (103 min)
1:00 p.m. 127 Hours (95 min)
3:00 p.m.The Kids are All Right (106 min)
5:45 p.m. True Grit (110 min)
7:45 p.m. The Fighter (116 min)
Saturday, February 26
11:00 a.m. Winter's Bone (100 min)
1:00 p.m. Black Swan (109 min)
3:10 p.m. Inception (148 min)
6:45 p.m. The Social Network (121 min)
9:00 p.m. The King's Speech (119 min)
They suggest you dress comfortably. Ha! Can I bring a bleacher cushion?
