See three 'Rings'

Theater to screen complete trilogy

For some people, there is no such thing as too much of a good thing.

Those are precisely the fans expected to show up Dec. 16 at Showcase Cinemas Springdale when the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy will unspool in a 10-hour marathon screening.

The first two films will be shown in the "special extended editions" created for DVD release; each is about a half-hour longer than the three-hour theatrical versions.

Each extended edition will run at Springdale briefly before the marathon: The Fellowship of the Ring Dec. 5-11, and The Two Towers Dec. 12-15.

New Line Cinema announced tickets will go on sale Thursday at 1 p.m. Representatives of National Amusements said ticket prices and other details had not been set.

For more information, find the Showcase Cinemas Springdale link at or call 671-0140.
