Lord of the Rings Returns to the State Theatre

There are several movies that we, as viewers, love to come back to and revisit over and over again. For me, it normally entitles Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Social Network, and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (I don’t have The Lion King on DVD yet #VHSorDie). In a sense, I’m kind of a nerd when it comes to these movies. The fight scenes are ridiculous, the special effects incredible, and the details are just something else. They are, in my opinion, the coolest and most captivating movies ever made.

For years I have been wondering how much I would have to pay to view these mammoth movies in theaters again. Thankfully my question has been answered: $6. Because the first installment of The Hobbit is right around the corner, the State Theater is putting on a showing of three — yes, ALL three — Lord of The Rings movies this week.

Starting Wednesday at 7 p.m., Fellowship of the Ring will be screened at the downtown venue, along with Two Towers and, my personal favorite, Return of the King, over the next two nights at the same time.

Thankfully, being a student has paid off monetarily and will allow me to relive my 4th-6th grade years. For more information on the events, you can click check out their site.
