In preparation for the first of a trilogy of films adapting J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy masterpiece, The Hobbit, it’s important to revamp your love for everything Middle-Earth. The best way is to go back where it all began—or where it all ends up—by watching The Lord of the Rings trilogy. But screening the movies at home won’t cut it. You need stellar sound, luxury seating and a whole theater of Frodo fanatics. Lucky for you, the Port Theater is showing all three movies—The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King—in the uncut extended director versions, and each movie starts with an introduction by director Peter Jackson. Plus, your ticket serves as an all-day pass, meaning you can come and go as you please. But why would you even want to miss one moment of this 777-minute marathon?!
