Cineworld, the UK’s second-largest cinema chain, has announced that they are going to hosting a Hobbit film trilogy marathon starting on the evening of the 11th December concluding with the final film, The Battle of the Five Armies, in the early hours of the 12th December.
Not only does this provide cinema-goers to see the first two films again – and all in 3D – but it means that attendees will be amongst the first people in the country to see the the final film. Their “Hobbit Trilogy 3D Triple Bill” will be shown at 56 cinemas across the country including at: London, Birmingham, Brighton, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Southampton and Wolverhampton.
This would provide an ideal opportunity for Tolkien Society smials (local groups) to get together before Christmas. If you would like to meet like-minded people in your area, get in touch with your local smial to find out what they’re doing this Christmas.
Shaun is the current Chair of The Tolkien Society. Elected in 2013, Shaun regularly speaks about adaptations of Tolkien’s works whilst passionately believing the Society needs to reach out to new audiences. In his spare time can be found in the cinema, playing video games and Lego, or on Twitter.
