We’ve all been there, enjoying a movie, when nature calls. It starts with a whisper, then becomes a shout. Before you know it, you’re not watching the movie so much as watching for a chance to make a mad dash to the restroom.
The RunPee app takes the guesswork out of this for you. We watch every wide release movie to find the best scenes you can use, if you need to run and pee.

The RunPee app is much more than just Peetimes.
Many consider the RunPee app “the” essential movie app, because it does so much more than just give you the best moments to Run and Pee during a movie:
- Built in Timer so you can enjoy using the RunPee app during a movie without disturbing those around you.
- Anything Extra in the end credits? We’ll let you know the details: exactly when the extra scene(s) are shown, how long they last, are they worth waiting for, and how long the credits last, etc.
- Peeple’s Poll: the definitive movie rating system that will tell you how people like a movie compared to their expectations, plus break down the ratings by gender and age, so you’ll know what people in your specific demographic think about a movie.
- Movie News and reviews: content related to the movie you’re seeing, and more.
- IMDb and RottenTomatoes: quick access directly to the movie you’ve selected at IMDb.com and RottenTomatoes.com.
- 3D movie quality: wondering if a movie is worth viewing in 3D? See what other RunPee users have to say about it.
When the RunPee app starts, you are presented with the Movie List Screen — a list of the new releases currently in theaters.
We add all wide release films each week (about 160 movies a year) — almost always on opening night, and sometimes earlier.
Tap on the flick you’re interested in and you’ll see the Movie Info Screen (below). You’ll find many of the ancillary features of the RunPee app. For now, let’s tap on the big button at the top: Press for Peetimes to…
This is what you’re here for: to find out the best time you can run and pee during a movie. These are called Peetimes.
Let’s take a closer look at exactly what a Peetime looks like.
Here’s a Peetime starting precisely at 47 minutes and 15 seconds into the movie when: Nathan asks, “How is Kong with Heights?”. That scene is your Cue the Peetime has begun. (We do our very best to make sure these cues are non spoilery.)You have four minutes and 35 seconds to take care of business or refresh your drink, and along the hallway you can tap on the Peetime and read a detailed, but brief, Synopsis of what you missed. That way you can return to your seat, ready to enjoy the rest of the movie — without feeling lost.
If you’re thinking: geez, I’m going to forget this Cue during the movie, then don’t worry — because we have you covered. The RunPee app has a built-in Timer to remind you of each upcoming Peetime.
30 seconds before each Peetime, you will get a notification/vibration on your phone, so you’ll know it’s now time to keep an eye/ear out for your Cue to get up and slip out. What could be better?
Actually, I know what could be better: if the RunPee app also informed you what, if anything, there is to see during the End Credits. And if those scenes are worth waiting for. Wouldn’t that be great? Wait: RunPee does this too! We call this bonus feature “Anything Extra.”
(What counts as anything extra? Good question. Read more here.)
The RunPee app has a lot of additional benefits to help improve your movie-going experience, but before we get to that, you may have seen Peecoins in some of the pictures above…and you’re wondering: Great, just how much is this going to cost me? The answer is: nothing!
You can use the RunPee app for free if that’s what you would like. You have the option to view short advertisements in the app. (Three quick ad views = 1 Peecoin.) Most importantly: you choose when you see advertisements. We never unexpectedly put an advert in front of you.
Crucially, the ONLY thing you need Peecoins for are to view Peetimes for a movie and use the Timer. We offer everything else for free, no advertisements and no Peecoins needed.
If you don’t want to bother with ads, you can purchase Peecoins in bundles of 10 for $1 — up to 40 Peecoins at a time. One Peecoin = one movie, always. Either way, the choice is up to you.
