Trekking across Middle-Earth is a big job. Trying to keep a precious ring safe from an evil lord is too. There's much that's massive about The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Peter Jackson's second screen adaptation of f J. R. R. Tolkien's beloved novels, particularly the nearly four-hour-long extended version. So you'll want to revisit it on a particularly huge screen — one that measures 44 metres long, perhaps?
Set up in the middle of Eagle Farm Racecourse, the aptly named Big Screen on the Green is that giant screen. It hosts films regularly, and from 7pm on Friday, January 18, it'll bringing hobbits, elves, wizards and more to its sizeable expanse. When it screened The Fellowship of the Ring back in September, the session sold out, so consider yourself warned.
Tickets cost $15, which gets you a spot on the public lawn — or you can spend $25 and get a large popcorn as well, plus your choice of wine, sparkling, house beer or a non-boozy beverage. You can't BYO food or drinks, but there'll be more available to purchase. Or if you'd like a picnic, bring a pal and nab a $60 gourmet hamper package for two, which includes charcuterie, a cheese platter and breads.
You can also rent picnic blankets for $12 and bean bags for $8.
