A golden opportunity for `Rings' fans

Senator planning marathon showing

October 11, 2003|By SUN STAFF

Baltimore fans of Peter Jackson's extended DVD cut of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring will get their first chance to see it on the big screen when it plays the Senator Dec. 5-11, followed on the 12th by the extended DVD version of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (due out on disc in November).

But Dec. 16 is the date for true believers in the Tolkien trilogy: back-to-back screenings of both prints will precede the local premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. The Senator will be the only Maryland theater to show this marathon, screening The Fellowship of the Ring at noon, The Two Towers at 4:30 p.m. and The Return of the King at 10 p.m.

The Senator will start selling tickets for the marathon only today at noon at the theater box office. The price is $35. The Senator accepts cash only, and limits purchases to 10 tickets per person. Until the supply sells out, tickets will go on sale at noon daily. For more information, call 410-435-1440.
