Schindlers List was a daunting 3hrs 15 mins, Titanic was three hours 14 mins and Gangs Of New York was two hours 45mins long.

Today, the Broadway Theatre has set this challenge to fans of the award-winning films because they will be shown in full on the theatre's enormous screen on July 23 and July 24. Gluttons for punishment, fans are already hammering at the theatre's kiosk snapping up 250 tickets, which cost 12.50 each, to see all three films. [More]
