Man watches 1300 movies in theaters over past 4 years (NY Times)

Kicking a Movie-a-Day Habit, After Four Years in Theaters

Mr. Barron says he has seen more than 1,300 movies in local movie theaters in the past four years – which averages to about a movie a day.


quote:

He settled into a weekly routine: a multiplex in Nyack, N.Y., on Monday mornings to see about four or five wide-releases in a row. On Friday nights, he took a seat at the Pelham Picture House for independent films. On Saturdays, he would take the train to Manhattan to watch movies that don’t make it to suburban theaters. On Tuesdays, he would go to the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville not far from his apartment in Ossining.


quote:

Mr. Barron claims he has never fallen asleep in a movie and never walked out. He says he never watches movies outside of theaters. He even schedules his bathroom trips by consulting a Web site that offers optimum times for taking quick bathroom breaks during films.

Even on his salary of $25,000 a year, he was able to afford movie tickets by avoiding vacations and other extraneous expenses, and subsisting on cheap meals, including a constant diet of instant macaroni and cheese – and steering clear of theater concession stands.

Basically he spent a lot of time sitting in one room facing one direction, paid a shite ton of money to do it, and lived off of Mac and Cheese?

You know some people with give you a piece of paper and a job for doing similar work.

He lives In the Hudsin Valley not NYC. Much cheaper. Lot of farmland. Believe it or not, outside of NYC, NY is just like any other state.

Too bad he not from Louisiana. He'd get a reality show for sure if he did.

I love movies, but I don't think I could sit still for that long.
