'The Lord of the Rings' Trilogy Marathon
Stock up on lembas bread to make it through all three films, back to back, on the big screen.

They're taking the hobbits to Isengard at The Astor Theatre this winter, 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.
Kicking off with The Fellowship of the Ring and ending with The Return of the King (with The Two Towers in the middle, of course), this cave troll of a marathon clocks in at over nine hours plus intermissions — with the journey starting at 1pm on Saturday, July 23.
If you make it through breakfast and second breakfast to the final handful of endings, you can pat yourself on the back and smash a ringwraith screech at the nearest person on your way home (note: do not actually screech at people).
Tickets are the precious and come in at $35 for the whole ordeal. And, you'll be watching all three films in remastered 4K versions of their original cuts — so expect to see Middle Earth in more detail than you've seen in before.
