Lord of the Rings Movie Marathon

Please join us this Saturday as we screen the extended cut versions of the three Lord of the Rings movies, just in time for the release of The Hobbit next week.  We're staying late just to fit them all in!

The Lord of the Rings is a film trilogy consisting of three epic fantasy films co-written and directed by Peter Jackson and based on the three-volume book of the same name by English author J. R. R. Tolkein. The films are, by subtitle, The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003). They were distributed by New Line Cinema.
Set in the fictional world of Middle-earth, the three films follow the hobbit Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) as he and a Fellowship embark on a quest to destroy the One Ring, and thus ensure the destruction of its maker, the Dark Lord Sauron. The Fellowship becomes divided and Frodo continues the quest together with his loyal companion Samwise Gamgee (Sean Astin) and the treacherous Gollum (Andy Serkis). Meanwhile, Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), heir in exile to the throne of Gondor, and the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) unite and rally the Free Peoples of Middle-earth, who are ultimately victorious in the War of the Ring. (from Wikipedia).  All three films are rated PG-13.
