They're taking the hobbits to Isengard at Dendy Coorparoo this summer, with one movie marathon to rule them all. Round up the Fellowship, stock up on lembas bread for sustenance and hide your finest pipe-weed from the Southfarthing for two sittings of all three of Peter Jackson's beloved OG Tolkien film adaptations — on Saturday, December 14 and Sunday, December 15.

Kicking off with The Fellowship of the Ring and ending with The Return of the King, this cave troll of a marathon clocks in at 558 minutes, and will run in full on both days. Pick which date to block out, then start the journey at midday, with five-minute breaks between each movie (for breakfast and second breakfast, if you will).

If you make it to the final handful of endings, you can pat yourself on the back and smash a ringwraith screech at the nearest Coorparoo resident on your way home (note: do not actually screech at the residents).

Without a ticket, expect at least one overenthusiastic cinema staff member to make an example of you, thundering "you shall not pass!" to raucous applause. So buy a ticket, precious, for $42 — with this all-day marathon taking place in Dendy's Premium Lounge.

And, to help ramp up your excitement, watch the trailer below:
