Some people really do have a lot of time on their hands.

A man from Wisconsin has broken the Guinness record for most times watching a single movie in a movie theatre 116 times!

That is a whole lot of popcorn…

Marvel super fan, Steve Ruppel, set the record by watching Brie Larson’s ‘Captain Marvel’ 104 times at Marcus Cedar Creek Cinema in Rothschild, Wisconsin. The 104 times was enough to capture the record but for good measure, Ruppel watched the movie an additional 12 times!

Who has that much time on their hands to watch over 242 hours of one movie?!

That has to do something to your brain.

And yes, believe it or not, he does have a job. And no, he hasn’t been fired from it yet. Here’s what he had to say about accommodating work and other parts of his life:

“The amount of time that it takes, I’ve had to take time off work, I would take long lunch breaks to accommodate watching an entire movie in that particular time frame and then just time on the weekends where I’m not doing other things.”

Guinness, however, couldn’t simply take him at his word. To provide further proof that he accomplished the feat, he had to take pictures and get written witness statements.

The movie has since been removed from his local theatre, so it appears that his record will stand at 116 viewings. 116 viewings at the rate ticket prices are at? Yikes, he must’ve spent a real, pretty penny!

What’s the most times you’ve seen one movie in a theatre?
