The world record in moviegoing?

October 09, 2008|From the Associated Press

Suresh Joachim of Toronto and Claudia Wavra of Germany claim to have broken the world record for continuous movie watching after seeing 57 films in 123 hours in a plastic-glass house in New York's Times Square.

A Guinness World Records spokesman said it appeared the duo had broken the record but said it would take two weeks to officially verify.

The rules: Each movie had to be viewed until the last credit rolled, and competitors couldn't divert their eyes from the screen. They were allowed 10-minute breaks between movies.
