One trilogy marathon to rule them all....

Join us at the Rio Theatre on Saturday, January 6 *and* on Sunday, January 21 (minors welcome!) for a daylong movie marathon event featuring Peter Jackson's LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy (Extended Edition!): Back-to-back, on the big screen, and in its entirety. Based on the high-fantasy epic novel by English author J.R.R. Tolkien, Jackson's trilogy represents a monumental achievement in modern filmmaking that has been embraced by fans around the world.

Costumes welcome and encouraged! (Or, feel free to stay comfy in your PJs; it's gonna be a l-o-n-g day of awesome. Your call, my precioussssss.) Be prepared for hosts, trivia, games, prizes, and more. Details coming soon!

Please be advised:

1) The scheduled start time of the first film is at 12:00 noon on Saturday, January 6 & Sunday, January 21. The start times are SHARP. Due to the nature of this trilogy marathon, start times on Parts 2 & 3 are "approximate." We will do our absolute best to keep break and start times consistent with the posted times throughout the day.
2) Doors for this show are at 10:30 am on Saturday, January 6 and Sunday, January 21. We encourage everyone to come early to ensure a great seat! Be prepared for all kinds of pre-show goodness (and goodies). We'll make it worth your while.
