Where to see TTT in the Bay Area - Tehanu @ 21:34 PST
The San Francisco Bay Area's biggest Lineparty is the one for the midnight showing at the Coronet, a fine old landmark theatre in San Francisco that is apparently showing TTT as its last movie before being demolished. As Rodney says on his Coronet Lineparty Site, "If you're one of those that hasn't purchased tickets for this event, and are debating on whether or not you should attend, let me say a few remarks to sway you over. At the end of this year, the Coronet Theatre is going to be torn down. In case you are ill-informed, the Coronet is one of the oldest and most prominent theatres in San Francisco and has a very rich history. The very first public Star Wars screening was shown here and it has been a favorite of George Lucas' throughout the years. Unfortunately, classic theatres such as the Coronet cannot compete with the massive corporate megaplexes that are sprouting up faster than a hobbit eating a twinkie. The Coronet is widely known throughout the bay area as THE place to watch event movies such as The Two Towers (which, by the way, is going to be the LAST movie shown here), so do yourself a favor and bask in its glory before one of the greats of San Francisco disapears forever."
