LOTR/Hobbit Extended Edition Movie Marathon hosted by Welly-moot Can't Post

Calling all Ringers in New Zealand and those planning on heading to New Zealand in March 2016. The team over at Welly-moot are arranging an event of special magnificence, assisted by the lovely crew at Roxy Theatre Wellington.

On March 24, 2016 they will be hosting the movie marathon to end all movie marathons! All six extended edition films back to back for 24 hours!
Roxy Cinema in co-operation with Welly-moot NZ, presents:


(The Hobbit 1,2,3 followed by LOTR 1,2,3 - all Extended Editions)

We've talked about it for a long time, but here it is, the Ultra-Mega-Super-Marathon. All six Middle-earth movies in a single sitting!

The Roxy Cinema will be hosting this event at the start of Easter 2016. The first session will start on Thursday March 24, and that means we will finish on the anniversary of the destruction of the Ring, March 25th, or Good Friday.

Tickets will be around $250, for that you get the following:
- 6 Extended Movies
- 3 meals from the Roxy
- Snacks between the other session
- Staff to look after us for a 24 hour session
- [much more to follow]

Seating is limited so if you want to attend please make sure you click on the "will-attend" on their Facebook events page or email them at events@welly-moot.com

I'm signed up! (crazy woman!) [In reply to] Can't Post

I knew this was in the works and kept thinking, "No. I cannot do that!", but when I heard today that it was a go, I put my name down. The Roxy folks are amazing with their special events - catering, decorating (surprises in store!), and all-around niceness. The New Zealand premier of BOTFA there was a night to remember. x6! Mind blowing, I reckon.

There's been at least one reservation from Australia today. You way-out-of-towners have four months to plan and save for this. We hope this lead time will give more people a chance to join the locals. Y'all come!

Now.....what shall I wear?

Very true! [In reply to] Can't Post

And would do them all again if I could stop time for a few days! Cool

Best of luck to you--maybe take a jog down to Stone St. in between films if you need an energy boost. Tongue

We just got this in from Welly-moot:

Quick event update - there are now also LOTR-only tickets available, for those who can't get Thursday 24th off, or aren't up to a 24 hour marathon (weaklings!).

The tickets get you all three LOTR (Extended Editions) at the Roxy Cinema, with breakfast and lunch as well. This starts from midnight (straight after The Hobbit Trilogy) and is $150 for all three LOTR films plus breakfast and lunch.

You may purchase here: http://ift.tt/1pAXuS6

Or call the Roxy, or visit them. As always, no refunds or unpaid bookings.

Aaaaand more information! More than one ticket give away! [In reply to] Can't Post

From the TORN home page just this morning:


So, get on The Roxy facebook page and the Welly-moot webpage and start writing, Tornfolk!

One of these amazing prize packages can be won via The Roxy’s own Facebook page; or, you can enter to win a package from Welly-moot:

‘… if anyone would like to attend, and turn up in style, then send an email to ‘competition@welly-moot.com’ with your best fan-story. It could be anything – the day you met one of the actors; your worst hard-luck story; what got you into Tolkien; – anything. Make it good, in less than 300 words! You’ve got until Wednesday the 16th, midnight (Wellington time). The Welly-moot committee will judge the best story, and they’ll be in touch with the winning entry!’

There is always hope!

So, more than one way to indulge in a good dose of fandom nostalgia semi-locally, then. [In reply to] Can't Post

The marathon was phenomenal. I only caught myself snoring once (I think). See a thorough report on the Welly-moot website. Thank you, Jack ( whose crazy idea it was), et al!

I must admit, yes I will, that I would do it again! The Roxy folk were marvelous hosts (and cooks!), Weta added their usual artistic flare, Tolkien fans are extraordinarily well-behaved and yet fun people to be around, the special guests added their enthusiastic magic, and Frodo made it to the mountain of fire and back - again. A most satisfying day, indeed. May other fans of these films around the world find friendly local cinemas willing to accommodate a six-extended-film event so that our event here would not really have been The End of All Things.

Photos of a day...and night...and day of special magnificence, 24-25 March 2016. [In reply to] Can't Post

Up up up we go on the staircase to the party room and main cinema.

Three Middle-earthy buffet meals, in-between snacks (muffins!), and endless pots of coffee to satisfy any hobbit's appetite. Thank you, Roxy! Thank you, Mojo!

A very satisfyingly full film schedule as well. Thank you, Sir Peter and company!

Warriors of Rohan and Gondor. Thank you, Weta! Jamie Selkirk's man in gold, Oscar by name, also attended.

Jed Brophy told it like it was and bravely stayed up all night with the fans. Thank you, Jed!
Jens Götz, the German Gandalf, who flew over from Europe for the event, is thinking of his poem to the tune of We Are the Champions

"Hymn of the Hobbits"
We are the hobbits my friend
and we keep on eating till the end.
We are the hobbits.
We are the hobbits.
No time for diets
Cause we are the hobbits
And eat till the end.

(Oh, and we did, Gandalf! We did!)

Thank you to so many people who made this wonderful event possible. Welly-moot has said it best.
Cheers, everyone!
