I like the range of movies so far, the best Thons for me are those that span a range of decades and have variety of film styles.

As ian has told me, the number of 70mm prints is pretty limited. Still, READY PLAYER ONE is fun and there are lots of easter eggs for Marathoners to spot

We have Crab Monsters in the 50s B&W camp.

And, yes, there will be one more unannouced title showing.

Agree that this looks like a well rounded selection of films.  Looking forward to the thon! 

On the official list page, upgrade is listed twice.  Also, could you add years or links to IMDb pages?  Several of these titles are difficult to look up because of multiple movies with the same title.
