Watching the EEs for cheap?

Watching the EEs for cheap? Can't Post

I've been wanting to revisit the Hobbit trilogy and see the EEs for the first time, but I can't find any way to rent the Extended Editions. Various digital sites seem to only have them for purchase. Netflix DVD doesn't have it. My local library has AUJ EE, but not the rest!
Anyone know of any way to watch them without purchasing a copy?

Can you borrow the other two DVDs [In reply to] Can't Post

by your library borrowing them from other libraries? NZ libraries have an interloan system; perhaps your local library has something similar to offer. It can't hurt asking. :)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Seconded on the library interloan option [In reply to] Can't Post

Our librarian will even order movies from Amazon if they don't have the movie in their system yet. (usually used/like new from third party vendors)

In the US [In reply to] Can't Post

libraries are typically funded locally (ie no national library system), so the availability of inter-library loans depends on what the sister libraries in their area have.

Definitely doesn't hurt to ask though Smile

My writing and novels:

My Hobbit Fanfiction

My historical novel print and kindle version

My historical novels ebook version compatible with all ereaders

You can also find my novel at most major book retailers online (and for those outside the US who prefer a print book, you can find the print version at Book Depository). Search "Amazing Grace Amanda Longpre'" to find it.

Happy reading everyone!
