Think you’re a big Marvel movie fan? Chances are, you haven’t come close to matching the cinematic endurance of Ramiro Agustín Alanis. So far, the young Mexican-American man from Florida has seen Spider-Man: No Way Home a record 292 times at the movie theater.

Alanis documented all his trips to the movie theater to see the Spider-Man sequel and posted a video montage online. Each photo he took during is 292 screenings features him in front of the Spider-Man: No Way Home movie poster and holding his ticket stub in one hand. In many of his photos, he’s wearing a Marvel-branded t-shirt, hoodie or jacket.

The Guinness Book of World Records recognized Alanis’ feat, which broke the record held by Arnaud Klein of France, who saw the 2021 French film Kaamelott: First Installment 204 times at the theater. Alanis first hit the record books in 2019 when he saw Avengers: Endgame in the theater 191 times.

To break the record, Alanis watched the sequel a maximum of five times per day.

Even after he broke the record, Alanis said he wasn’t tired of the movie. He added that it’ll probably take him a few weeks to go back and see it again, but apparently, he plans to return.

Alanis said he’s not sure how much money he spent on movie tickets during his record run, but he guesses it’s close to $3,400.

It’s probably safe to say that the price per-theater visit increased with the amount of popcorn he ate during his cinematic conquest.
