LOTR at the Alamo Drafthouse Report! - Xoanon @ 22:19 PST
LOTR at the Alamo Drafthouse Anton writes: This past Sunday, August the 21st, in Austin Texas, a local movie theater by the name of Alamo Drafthouse showed all three Lord of the Rings movies back to back in one day, much like theaters around the world did on trilogy tuesday two years ago.

Alamo Drafthouse is a unique theater, which serves you food during the movie, each row has its own little table. For this showing of the LOTR trilogy, they served all 7 hobbit meals, which included a chicken stew or root vegetable stew, strawberries and cream, and tea for afternoon tea with a biscuit and cookies, among other meals.

The Fellowship started at about 10am, and Return of the King ended at about 10 at night, with 30 minut breaks inbetween each film. The first two films were extended editions, while Return was theatrical because the extended version has never been put on film. Another nice touch which came inbetween lunchen and afternoon tea, were four small peices of lembas bread wrapped in a banana leaf. Over all the experience was very good, and for any die hard LOTR fan, something like this is a must. I would adivse anyone who leaves near Austin or can make the venture to Austin, the Alamo Drafthouse will be holding another showing in November and tickets go on sale this friday, August 26th.
