Fans of Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth series will have an opportunity to see the last installment of his six-film cycle two days in advance of the scheduled national release date.  Sure to be the biggest film of the year, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will round out a day-long marathon beginning at 12:30 p.m. local time around the country on Monday, December 15, 2014.  The national release is Wednesday, December 17, 2014.

AMC Theaters, Cinemark Theaters, and other theater chains are continuing the recent tradition of hosting blockbuster marathons including events for The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Avengers Marathon, The Die Hard Marathon, and The Dark Knight Trilogy.

Attendees will receive a commemorative lanyard and one of three posters created for the marathon.

Relive the adventure with Bilbo Baggins, as he reluctantly sets out on an epic quest, in THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY. Watch Bilbo and his company face their fears without their wizard in THE HOBBIT: DESOLATION OF SMAUG. Then see the epic conclusion, as the Dwarves, Elves and Men decide whether to unite or be destroyed, in THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES.

Check the AMC Theaters website here and Cinemark website here for locations and to order tickets.  Many showings are already sold out so act fast.  Google “Hobbit Marathon” for other chains that may be running a marathon in your area.
