Description: The American Cinematheque presents a triple bill of Peter Jackson’s three LORD OF THE RINGS films: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, THE TWO TOWERS, nad THE RETURN OF THE KING. All three films will be show in their extended versions, not the theatrical cuts seen in theatres; unfortunately, only the first two fill be in 35mm, with RETURN OF THE KING screened from a Blu-ray disc.
Incidentally, the Cinematheque website offers this explanation for the screening:
The Independent Film & Television Alliance (IFTA), marking its 30th anniversary, has selected the 30 Most Significant Independent Films(tm) from around the world produced over the past three decades.
Considering the size and scope of the films, I think “independent” is a bit of a stretch in this case.
There will be a Renaissance Pleasure Fair from noon to 4pm, with the Egyptian theatre transformed into an Elizabethan vilalge with food merchants, performers, and craft demonstrations. Admission is free.
Date: January 22 – doors open at noon, films start at 1pm
