Select Theaters Are Playing a Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright Marathon August 22nd

The World's End, the final movie in Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost's "Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy" hits theaters in the US on August 23rd. To commemorate the special occasion, several theaters across the country are playing The World's End in a marathon along with the trio's other two films, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, on August 22nd. Here's a list of Regal Cinemas theaters playing the movies back-to-back-to-back that Thursday evening. Pegg tweeted that select Alamo, Arclight, and AMC theaters will also be participating in these marathon screenings.
