During the opening happy birthday song, Nicolas Cage walked out on stage and launched immediately into a breathtaking reading of The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe, captured in the intro video below.

He then proceeded to spend the next 12 hours watching Nicolas Cage films that he personally programmed with the most rabid Nicolas Cage fans in the country. And also presiding over an in-theater marriage proposal.

Every year for the last four years, programmer Greg MacLennan has lined up a secret marathon of five Nicolas Cage movies, one of the most popular events at the Alamo Drafthouse. This year's event sold out within five minutes after going on sale. And every year, a valiant attempt has been made to host the man himself in celebration of his cinematic life. In 2016, things came close and he sent a letter to the audience, promising if it were scheduled for another year he would make an appearance. "This is and will always be the greatest day of my life, I apologize to my unborn future child," said Alamo Drafthouse programmer Greg MacLennan.

"I'm thrilled to say I made it to C4GED. I've been trying to get here before, never happened, but I was always very touched that this was occurring here in Austin," said Nicolas Cage.

The 2017 marathon at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar was programmed by Nicolas Cage himself, selecting the following lineup. Mr. Cage watched all 5 movies with the audience.
