Butt-Numb-a-Thon 2015


The BNAT 2015 audience during a break in the middle of the night.

Once again this past December, I was given the honor of joining the audience of the Butt-Numb-a-Thon in Austin, TX. For 24 hours, around 200 or so hardcore movie nerds and I indulged in whatever cinematic glory that Harry Knowles felt like pouring into our eye sockets.

Windy Bowlsby, Meghan Murphy, and I already talked at length about the sights and sounds of BNAT 2015 over on Xanadu Cinema Pleasure Dome, but I also like to create a yearly text-and-link list of everything we saw. Alongside the movies, we get a host of amazing vintage trailers, so if you would like to see a little piece of the Butt-Numb-a-Thon, you can click the links below and see it for yourself.

Also, I’ve created a full playlist of all the links below on YouTube, if you’d just like to marathon all the videos.
