The Lord of the Rings Screenings



During the month of June movie theaters all across the county will be reshowing the Lord of the Rings Extended Edition Trilogy. Watching these films again in a theater atmosphere is an opportunity you won't want to miss if you are a fan. Also, if you haven't seen the extended editions yet you need to! They offer so much more content and a bunch of really good scenes that didn't make it into the theatrical release.

This is all in an attempt to generate more buzz for the upcoming Hobbit movies, and each of the screenings will have a short introduction from Peter Jackson on the set of the new film. There are quite a few theaters that are participating in this from what I've seen, but for all the details look here http://www.fathomevents.com/originals/series/lordoftherings.aspx. This is truly an amazing chance to watch these films again, surrounded by other fans of the series.

  11. I saw each of the three at least three times each when the films were in theaters, and I bought all three special collector additions when they came out on DVD. God I love LoTR. :P
