The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (Extended)

Sign-up to receive updates about this and other events and films.

Please note this marathon screening is now in 1903 Theatre, due to popular demand. 


“The trilogy will not soon, if ever, find its equal.”

Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

In a word: epic. No, make that EPIC. From the audacity of its adaptation to the excellence of its execution, Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings movies are regarded by many as film’s greatest trilogy. Academy Award nominations? 30. Oscars won? 17. Each film was up for Best Picture, with The Return of the King winning in all 11 categories in which it was nominated. No other film has achieved that. But the versions of these three films that originally played in theatres were not the complete story…

Which brings us to your own amazing journey: experience the extended editions of all three films on the big screen. These versions add over two hours of expanded and new scenes, and not one second of any of it is wasted.

As if you’d need any more reasons to watch, let’s just say…Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Bean, John Rhys-Davies, Orlando Bloom, Sean Astin, Ian Holm, Liv Tyler, Cate Blanchett, Andy Serkis, and many, many other fine actors create one magnificent ensemble cast.

Join the fellowship of fans who cite these extended editions as the definitive versions. For Frodo!
