This is heavy: ArcLight Hollywood is holding a movie marathon of all three “Back to the Future” movies Oct. 21.

Tickets are $30 to watch all three movies, starting at 4:29 p.m. As We Like L.A. points out, the three films together clock in at 388 minutes, so expect to get out around 11 p.m. at the earliest.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, 1985’s Back to the Future tells the story of about a young man who travels 30 years into the past via a time-traveling DeLorean and gets caught up in all kinds of shenanigans like making out with his mom. The second movie involves Marty McFly going into the future of 2015, where he finds very accurately that we all have hoverboards and fax machines in every room. The third film takes place in the Wild West and involves a flying train, from what we can recall.

Watch the original Back to the Future trailer below:
