Movie Marathon Ideas for the Last Days of Summer

Food & Entertainment

We’re past the honeymoon stage of summer. As the mosquito bites and flaky sunburns settle in, going outside starts to feel like a drag. Embrace your inner blahs by throwing an end of summer heat movie marathon. Make some cocktails, invite your cat and refuse to get out of your PJs. Here are some marathon concepts to get you started.

Grab your high school pals and get ready for a day of watching movies we thought we were *so* indie for liking back then. See how they stand the test of time and prepare to fall in love all over again.

Movie Ideas

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

American Beauty

Donnie Darko

I Heart Huckabees


Get ready to emote. We’re about to take a deep dive into movies that once made you feel good about feeling bad about life. The good news is, now you’re a grown up so you can drink booze while you watch them. Cheers.

Movie Ideas

High Fidelity

Fight Club

Garden State

Lost in Translation

Can you believe we live in a world without Brittany Murphy, Paul Walker, and Heath Ledger? We cannot. Celebrate their legacies by watching some of their best flicks. WE MISS YOU GUYS!

Movie Ideas

Uptown Girls


She’s All That

Fast and the Furious

10 Things I Hate About You

Remember being 13 and watching a movie full of women and deciding which character was you and which were your friends? Um, we never age out of doing this. Celebrate the art of the female friendship with a movie marathon dedicated to besties.

Movie Ideas

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Charlie’s Angels

The Sweetest Thing

Life Happens

The Baby-Sitters Club

2017 has been shitty. Take a day to get some self-care by escaping into movies where women kick ass, literally or figuratively. This list will make you want to put on your boxing gloves and/or study math and law. Godspeed.

Movie Ideas

Hidden Figures

Legally Blonde

The Devil Wears Prada

Erin Brockovich

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Kill Bill

Charlie’s Angels

Inglourious Basterds

Wonder Woman

The Force Awakens

We’re supposed to scoff at mediocre movies starring our favorite midriff-baring pop stars, but deep down we can’t. They’re just too goddam fun. Unapologetically appreciate the acting chops of your favorite teenybopper pop stars and/or American Idol winners. Singing along counts as a workout, so you might need some candy to fuel up.

    Oh I love this idea! I’ve got to get this very secret popcorn recipe from my coworker and get ready for a nice movie marathon soon. Hidden Figures is one of my absolute favorites, but 10 Things I Hate About You & Clueless are the ones I usually end up watching again and again!

    It’s sort of a hassle, but at some point it gets much easier whatever you don’t require to ask for the entire day off unless you desire.
