Middle-earth fans will soon be heading back to cinemas for a very special The Lord of the Rings event.
If you are a fan of the original three “Lord of the Rings” films and have perhaps always wanted to see the extended versions of the trilogy on the big screen, you must hurry now. In fact, Peter Jackson’s famous fantasy saga is returning to German cinemas, but only on a single day in certain cinemas.
On the anniversary of Tolkien’s death: “Lord of the Rings” in the cinema
The trilogy will be shown as a marathon screening in all CineStar cinemas throughout Germany on Saturday, September 2nd. Beginning at 12 noon, the films will play back-to-back and are expected to last until midnight. There will be scheduled short breaks to catch your breath. This event is closely tied to September 2nd as it marks the 50th anniversary of the death of JRR Tolkien – the imaginative author who provided the literary basis for the Middle-earth epic.
A ticket for this special performance will cost 19.90 euros. Owners of a CineStarCARD save at least three euros. Advance sales have already started in some German cinemas. So if you’re interested in embarking on this cinematic adventure, you should get tickets as soon as possible and check out the nearest CineStar cinemas.
Some cinemas offer the films in German, while others will show them in the original language. Since the extended versions of the films were released later on DVD and Blu-ray and are significantly larger than the original theatrical versions from 2001, 2002 and 2003, this event is also appealing to those who watched the trilogy on screen two decades ago have.
