On Sunday, we reported that Regal Cinemas are hosting a Lord of the Rings marathon screening across the US on 8th December.  We can now confirm that AMC Cinemas will also be hosting a marathon on Saturday 8th December. Cinemark is joining the fun with screenings on both December 8 and 9.

Timings are a little different from those listed for Regal Cinemas – and may vary from cinema to cinema for AMC.  Timings given for a Boston AMC theatre, for example, were The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring at 10 a.m., The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers at 2.20 p.m. and ending with The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King at 7:00 p.m.  All three movies will be the Extended Editions.

Cinemark reports a uniform 11 a.m. start times for Fellowship and a ROTK start time at 7:35. They are also offering concessions discounts. Ticket prices are $25, matching AMC’s, but $30 for its  handful of XD or extreme digital auditoriums. Check with your local AMC to see if they are taking part. Theater listings for Cinemark can be found right here. Between the three chains, most fans will be covered so see you in Middle-earth!
