About Escape the Week Mega Marathon

Finals got you down? The 9-to-5 stressing you out? Swing by the IU Cinema and take a break from it all! Doors open at 11:30am with films screening back-to-back, starting at 12pm. There will be no intermissions, but we are scheduling a five-minute bathroom break between the start of each film. You can stay for as long or as little as you like!

And, this is big: we’re breaking our own rules… that’s right, SNACKS WILL BE ALLOWED! Snacks, drinks in resealable/enclosed containers (there are no cupholders in the Cinema!), and finger foods that do not emit a strong odor will be allowed for this event. Alcohol, cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, and illicit drugs are prohibited at IU Cinema.
