pparently THIS is a thing that movie-goers are super concerned about now- one of the MOST asked questions about Avengers: Endgame is “but when is the best time to pee?” during the 3+ Marvel Studios film.
For the most part, those of us who willingly sat through the theatrical release of the Lord of the Rings extended editions are shaking our heads, but, we’re also not judging.
RunPee is an actual, real app, that lists the best times in films to use the restroom (among other things):
The RunPee app exists to improve your movie-going experience. The database is updated weekly, whenever wide-release films open in theaters — to tell you the best times to run and pee, without missing the best scenes. Of course, we provide a synopsis with each Peetime, so you will know exactly what you missed while you’re gone. There is no other information like this in the entire world. We have over 1,300 movies in our database, and more added every week by our family.
How does it work? The built-in Timer will alert you, by discreet vibration, when a Peetime is coming — so you don’t have to worry about bothering the people around you in the theater. Now you can relax and enjoy the movie…without wondering when to take a break. You never have to sit down again and ask, “What did I miss?”
Because clearly, what modern movie theater-going audiences need is an excuse to keep their damn phones on during a film.
