The LOTR Extended Edition trilogy marathon in LA this September Can't Post

The American Cinematheque will be screening their annual LOTR Extended Edition Trilogy marathon on Saturday, September 12 at the Aero Theater, 1328 Montana ave. in Santa Monica. In addition to the films, this will also be a tribute to Christopher Lee and Andrew Lesnie with discussions between the films with executive producer Mark Ordesky, and more guests to be announced. For details on how to get tickets and directions, please go to American Cinematheque website.

As usual, TheOneRing.net will be at the theater all day long, but in lieu of trivia contests on stage between films, we will host a few "pop trivia questions" in the concession lines. After all, what else are you going to do while standing in line when you could be having fun winning stuff. All this because there will be special guest appearances on stage during the intermissions. The Cinematheque is bringing in a Food truck for the intermissions, so there should be a little bit of variety for food options, yum.

For those of you who reside in LA and have attended some of these Cinematheque trilogy screenings before, you know there is nothing more entertaining than getting to see these films on the big screen again, and with a bunch of fellow fans. Hopefully a few of you are on their mailing list or are members of the American Cinematheque. After all, with the LOTR trilogy being an annual event, chances are you will want to attend every year, and in between Trilogy screenings, they offer some other pretty cool programming all year long. Between foreign language films, indie films, classics and some really avant garde films, many of which they also bring in cast or crew members, it feels like a year round film festival. And membership will get your discounted tickets, most of which will be $7 per show (and $10 for this trilogy), free members only sneak preview screenings, and priority ticket purchase and entry for certain screenings. For more details, just head to their membership page.

This is a great price for all three films.. . but a caution about the Aero [In reply to] Can't Post

Aero is on the small side.... one big theater with tiny bathroom facilities and typical Santa Monica parking. If you go about 2 blocks north on 14th street you escape the two hour parking.

They are saying 10 minute intermissions but that's not going to work given the limited concession area and restrooms.

If you are in the area (and I drive an hour and a half to get there 105 miles straight freeway) it's a great experience.
