- When are PeeTimes for a newly released movie posted?
- Who writes the PeeTimes?
- How do I become a Peep?
- How come some of your PeeTimes suggest leaving at important plot points?
- Where are the Limited Release Movies and the Independent Films?
Unfortunately, no one involved with RunPee.com has access to pre-screenings of movies. So we have to wait just like everyone else to see a movie.
Our goal is to watch the opening showing of every wide-release movie—Usually late Thursday afternoon. There are usually 2-4 movies released each week. We try to get someone scheduled for each movie, but sometimes a Peep might need to see two movies which will delay the Peetimes for both.
Who writes the PeeTimes?
We have a staff of Peeps that get the Peetimes for all the movies. RunPee is a family-run business. Peetimes for most of the blockbuster movies are done by Dan Gardner (Founder/CEO) and his wife Vera, his sister Christene Johnson does all of the horror and many romance movies, and RunPee Mom does most of the children’s movies. We also have Rob Williams who helps us with movies in the UK, and Dana Simone pitches in every so often.
How do I become a Peep?
We’re always delighted to bring more people on board to help us do Peetimes for movies. But you should know that it’s not easy and the pay isn’t going to help you quit your day job. If you would like to know more I would suggest reading the following few posts:

Actually, it’s super hard to find PeeTimes in good, well-edited movies. But we want to leave you with nothing. Sometimes the PeeTimes are simply spots in the movie that can be easily summed up, so you won’t be lost when you get back.
So, for example, in Harry Potter 6, we have a PeeTime where you miss Harry getting his Advanced Potions book. It’s important to the plot, but honestly easy to miss: he gets the book and realizes someone smart – but unknown – owned it previously. Easy to sum up and now you know what is going on.
There has to be a scene of at least three-four minutes where you can skip out and not worry you wasted your hard-earned movie ticket money – we want you to be able to slip back into the movie and be able to pick up the gist of things. So we look for scenes that can be described in a few words.
We try to add Peetimes for as many movies as we can. We do all of the wide-release movies and a handful of limited releases. Our general rule of thumb is to watch all of the movies that come to our local eight-screen AMC theater.
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including Drive Away Dolls, Madam Web, One Love, Argylle, I.S.S., and coming soon DUNE part II and many others. We have literally thousands of Peetimes—from classic movies through today’s blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there’s a new film out there, we’ve got your bladder covered.

Aspiring author. Would like to finish his “Zombie Revelations” trilogy if he could break away for working on RunPee and the cottage he’s building for RunPee Mom.
