   Like the time travel theme. Time Machine, Back to the Fulture are two obvious choices.

We showed TIME MACHINE just a few years back. BACK TO THE FUTURE (or its sequels; which have never showed) sounds good

I can think of a few time travel movies that have never played the marathon:

The Final Countdown
Predestination
Happy Death Day
Somewhere in Time
Terminator 3
Terminator: Genisys
Terminator: Dark Fate
Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150

For some that haven't played the thon in a while:

The first two Bill & Ted movies
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Time After Time

Time Barrier has never shown. Personally, I could do without Bill or Ted

The time Traveler's Wife (2009) was pretty solid. I think it would play well at the Marathon.
