You're not supposed to vote for the image but the text underneath the image as defined by the actual wording of the question. There are ranges of times in each option.

Looks like it was Return of the King at 201 min. Can't imagine I stayed in my seat the whole time at that age but I was in the building.

201 minutes < X > 220 minutes (Andrey Rubliov at 205). It was a bad idea not to drink any coffee beforehand.

The way it turned out, I was constantly on the verge of feeling asleep and my bladder was aching too...

If I count both parts of Nymphomaniac, that's around 240 mins, even though I only saw the "short" version.

Otherwise, Lawrence of Arabia last year at about 228 minutes.

I guess Lawrence of Arabia would have been my longest film experience at the movies.

In the theater it has been The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.


I have seen longest movies in a single view like Lawrence of Arabia but that has been at home.

The two longest films I've seen, Novecento and Gangs of Wasseypur, I saw in two sessions.

this is a really great idea stephen...

i remember going to the movies was usually two movies, plus coming attractions, news clips, cartoons, etc...you never went just to see one film...

and then all those great movie marathons like 5 marx brothers films in a row or the entire series of the original planet of the apes in chronological order (which was 5 films as well)....

and as i wrote, the longest individual movie was 'napoleon'...over four hours long (at least 240 minutes...not sure of the specific length)....

but just seeing the list of individual movies is very cool....again...great idea....

I wish they regularly screened old movies and arranged marathons in any movie theater in my area nowadays...

I saw Gone with the Wind when it was re-released to theaters in 1998, so that would be my longest one.

Longest I saw was Endgame, at 180 minutes.  Actually, it didn't feel that long.
