'The Lord of the Rings' Extended Trilogy Marathon
Stock up on lembas bread to make it through all three films, back to back, on the big screen.
They're taking to hobbits to Isengard at the Astor Theatre this January, 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 one sitting of all three of Peter Jackson's beloved OG Tolkien film adaptations — in their extended forms.
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 686 minutes plus intermissions, starting the journey at 10am and including two 20-minute meal breaks (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 St Kilda resident on your way home (note: do not actually screech at the residents).
Tickets are the precious and come in at $35 for the whole ordeal.
