One Marathon to rule them all…August 13th at Broadway.

$35 for all three films! Tickets will include swag, food, and trivia for an amazing one day event.



Your journey begins with The Fellowship of the Ring at Noon. There will be a 30 minute break before The Two Towers at roughly 3:00 pm. Following that film, there will be a 60 minute break for dinner at 6:30 pm before The Return of the King at 7:30 pm. The full program should exit by 11:00 pm.

The Lord of the Rings is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential film series ever made. Each film was critically acclaimed, with high praise for their innovative special effects, acting, set design, musical score and emotional depth, and heavily awarded, the series winning 17 Academy Awards. 

Set in the fictional world of Middle-earth, the trilogy follows the hobbit Frodo Baggins as he and the Fellowship embark on a quest to destroy the One Ring, to ensure the destruction of its maker, the Dark Lord Sauron. The Fellowship eventually splits up and Frodo continues the quest with his loyal companion Sam and the treacherous Gollum. Meanwhile, Aragorn, heir in exile to the throne of Gondor, along with Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, Merry, Pippin and the wizard Gandalf, unite to save the Free Peoples of Middle-earth from the forces of Sauron and rally them in the War of the Ring to aid Frodo by distracting Sauron’s attention.

The fellowship's journey begins as they march to Mordor to destroy the one ring.
