This is a race to see who can watch the most movies in the theater in 2016.

Rules (subject to change):
1. Only feature-length films seen in a theater can be counted (exception: a screening of multiple short films can be counted as one film)
2. Release year doesn't matter - old films, new films, they all count
3. Please post the movie title and the month you saw the movie (if different from the month of your post). When applicable, please specify if it was a repeat viewing (see #4 below), a sneak-in (see #5 below), and/or if you saw the 3D or IMAX version of the film. If you don't state otherwise, I'll assume it's not a repeat viewing or a sneak-in, and it was the regular, non-3D, non-IMAX version. You don't have to post any of the movie-specific details like run time, genre, etc. - I'll keep track of all that in my spreadsheet. But, feel free to add extra info if you prefer. As long as the info I need is included in the post, I have no preference on how the post is formatted. If you would like to keep a list of all your movies for the year, please maintain that list in one post, and include only updates in subsequent posts. It helps keep the thread tidy, and makes recording updates easier for me. Thanks!
4. A viewing counts as a repeat for any movie that you have already seen in the theater. If you have previously seen the movie on DVD, VHS, and/or TV, but this is the first time you've seen it in a theater, then that is not considered a repeat.
5. A film counts as a sneak-in if you sneak into the screening without paying for it. The following situations do not count as a sneak-in: paying for a cheaper ticket, but instead going to a more expensive screening; paying for 2D, but instead going to the 3D version; going to a screening using a festival pass, unlimited pass, or gift card; buying a ticket at the student price even though you graduated college years ago...basically this is meant to be a measure of sneakiness, not frugality.
6. Anyone can enter the race at any time. No purchase necessary.

Previous races:
2009
2010
2011
2012
2013
2014
2015


Everything above is plagiarized from Sugarpuss O'Shea's previous threads. She used to compile a tracking spreadsheet and post final results. I don't do that, though. Here's hoping Sugar returns to the fold soon.

It should, shouldn't it? That phrasing didn't google as well for me.

I take the sentiment is not lost all the same.

On the board with 1 total, 1 repeat.

01 Jan 16 - Joy Cineworld*

In case you're wondering, no, this film was not so good that it demanded an immediate rewatch. It's just that the wife was sick when I saw the preview and this was the first film she actually wanted to see in the cinema for a while.

I really enjoyed it. It manages to take a pretty dense, seemingly unfilmable topic and deal with it in both an informative and fun way. Friends I was with also enjoyed, but my parents thought it was a little too shallow.
