Lord of the Rings Extended Edition viewing schedule

We are hoping to keep to the following “pause schedule,” in order to allow people to catch up to the same part of the movie.

If you’re just arriving, ask an op (those friendly folks with an @ in front of their name) where we are in the movie.

We will pause at each stop long enough to make sure that we’re all at the same point. At intermission, we will take a 15-minute break for restocking of snacks and such. At the end of the movie we will break for 30-minutes.
