How far will you go to see The Hobbit? Can't Post

This post is inspired by something gramma said on Off Topic yesterday, where The Hobbit is soon leaving her theater. It got me to thinking of the LOTR movies, when the individual movies started leaving theaters, and what some folks did to see them just one more time.

The Hobbit will start leaving theaters soon, and while I'm lucky enough to live in a large city (Chicago) and I have a few more weeks, it's time to start thinking about how to squeeze in a few more viewings.

When the LOTR movies started leaving my area, I scoured the second-run theaters and once drove to Joliet (about 45 miles from me) to see it. That's the farthest I traveled, and I only did it once.

What will you do when The Hobbit leaves your area?
