Florida man Ramiro Alanis has secured the Guinness World Record for the most cinema productions attended for the same film, after watching Spider-Man: No Way Home loads of times.

By now, most people have seen the hit film but none more than Alanis.

The Spider-Man super fan broke his own record watching the latest Tom Holland flick and at this point probably has spidey-senses himself, or at least great movie etiquette.

So, how many times did Alanis watch the film?

Just shy of 300 times, Alanis set the Guinness World Record by watching the film 292 times, from 16 December 2021 to 15 March 2022, and took to Twitter to share the news.

"292 Cinema Productions attended of the same Film - @SpiderManMovie My swing got to it’s end…Thank you all."

Alanis broke his own record, which he'd previously set with Avengers: Endgame.

The Florida man watched Endgame 191 times in 2019 but that record was subsequently broken by Arnaud Klein, who watched Kaamelott: First Instalment 204 times.

Ramiro was 'a little bit disappointed' when he'd heard his first record had been broken by Arnaud.

But, with a renewed sense of motivation and an incredible Marvel film to watch, he fought to reclaim his title.

Ramiro said that his latest heroic effort was dedicated to his grandmother, Juany, who passed away in 2019.

"She was my #1 supporter and I want to remain the record holder."

And remain a record holder he did, watching 720 hours of the latest Spider-Man film.

That's 30 days if anyone's wondering and it doesn't seem like the worst way to spend a month.

While Ramiro's record seems pretty fun, there are actually a few rules he had to abide by, mainly that the film viewing had to be completed independently from any other activity.

This means no phones, no bathroom breaks, and no incredible movie theatre naps that seem to just hit better than any other nap on Earth.

Ramiro learned about this in a pretty frustrating way, as 11 of his film viewings were disqualified because of bathroom breaks, which honestly seems a little harsh.

Also in the record rule book, the film had to be watched the whole way through including credits and every ticket stub needs to be submitted for evidence, so no watching the DVD at home on repeat.

Pulling late nights and watching consecutive viewings in the cinema, Ramiro fought hard to work on the record within his daily life.

"Trying to stay put mentally with work, family and the attempt,” was the hardest part for Ramiro.

But, he did it, and honestly, we're hoping he signed up for a cinema loyalty scheme.
