If there’s such a thing as too much Star Wars, then seven yet-to-be-picked fans are about to find out. Alamo Drafthouse is holding a “never-ending” movie marathon, and the winner will be the person who can watch the most Star Wars before losing their damn minds.

On December 17, seven fans will start watching the first six movies at Alamo’s South Lamar in Austin. But by the time they hit Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the ante gets upped: contestants have to watch over and over. Forever. Or at least, until there’s only one left.

The person who manages to last the longest will not only get Star Wars swag, but more importantly, a seven-year pass to Alamo Drafthouse theaters and their newly launched Star Wars menu. The pass will cover at least the next four scheduled Star Wars movies.

The participants are being picked via Instagram, and they can be from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Kansas, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia, and D.C.

December 10 is the last day to enter.
