I will say I am lucky to have a second run theater in my neighborhood [In reply to] Can't Post

and when I say neighborhood, I mean that. It's on a commercial corner nestled in a neighborhood in a largish urban city. It's a vintage theater first opened in the 50s with pretty much all its architecture intact and only upgrades to seating, screen, projection, and sound (and a little to the bathrooms!). It isn't 'restored' in the sense that it never fell into disuse or disrepair.

It's run by a family, not a corporation, and it showed FOTR all summer long in 2002 (where I saw that movie 7 out of the 9 times I watched it in that first year). They also host a LOTR trilogy event every December except for last year. The studios wouldn't release the film to them last year.

THAUJ already showing up on the 'Coming Soon' page and I hope to watch it as often as I can when it comes.

Finances kept me from watching THAUJ much in the first run theater. I used a coupon for one show, a old gift card for another, and the third was a family event. I'm contending myself with seeing it at the Riverview Theater and then on DVD as much as I want.

And just for kicks, I can find 16 theaters in the Twin Cities (Minnesota) metro area (includes quite a few cities) showing THAUJ 2D tomorrow. They range from 1 to 4 shows during the day depending on location.

And, surprisingly, one theater listing 3D HFR for tomorrow. I wonder if that's a mistake.

No theaters were listing 3D LFR for tomorrow.
