For those diehard fans who shout “Bring me that horizon” every time there’s a chance to see Johnny Depp as the swishy swashbuckler, here’s an event that was made for you: Disney’s grand old El Capitan Theatre is staging a “Pirates” marathon on Thursday with all three previous movies leading up to the  screening of the newest installment, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which stars Depp, Penelope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush and Ian McShane.

The  all-day marathon starts at 9 a.m. and will run about 10 hours. Disney is encouraging fans to dress up and there will a collector pin giveaway, lunch and dinner breaks, an ice cream intermission and a few surprises along with appearances by “Pirates”  crew and creative contributors, including Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer. Tickets are available by phone at (800) 347-6396 and the El Capitan box office.

    What a fantastic idea and a great way to enjoy a day of Pirates. I hear there are a lot of gifts including pieces of eight! The El Capitan is also giving away a authentic period gold piece worth over $2,000 each week of the run to some lucky moviegoer. Goldline International is providing the pieces of eight and the gold coins. The only place to see Pirates is at the El Capitan!

    It was a fantastic day–loved the new On Stranger Tides–quite a bit different from the last 2 in some ways. Loved seeing that sexy side of Capt. Jack as well as a female pirate in Penelope that really gives him a run for his money. Also–Capt. Barbossa as Geoffrey Rush is wonderful in this one. It was nice to see more focus on character interaction and less CGI, but the actions sequences blended it all together so the time flew by–very well paced.
