Lord Of The Rings Day



Big thanks to Michelle and Rich for getting these tickets!

Now, we all heard about there being a bunch of places showing the entire Lord Of The Rings Trilogy in one long day, but when I heard about the one being held by the Film Society of Lincoln Center, I had to jump in! Not only were they showing the Trilogy, but afterwards there would be a Q and A with the Director and members of the cast! How could you pass something like that up? You can't!

It was a cold day! On the way to Lincoln Center, Heather and I spotted steam rising off the water!

Of course, by the time we got the camera out, we were near La Guardia, and the steam had stopped, but it was wild to see!

So true... Of course, I've been a member since '95. :)

In between each film, a member of the cast would come out and say a few words about the film, their role in it, and other, less interesting things. Here's Bernard Hill (Theoden) chatting away.

Andy Serkis (Gollum/Smeagol) singing in the Smeagol voice. It was quite hilarious!

Here's our crew, Rich, Natalie, Heather and me!

After Return Of The King, the entire group came out to answer questions. They also had Peter Jackson live via Satellite from New Zealand.

Peter Jackson's big, giant head! See the video at the bottom of this page for a really funny clip!

Sean Astin (Sam) telling his stories, and being frightened by Peter Jackson's big, giant head!

Bernard Hill.

Elijah Wood (Frodo) looking very un-hobbit-like.

Andy Serkis (Gollum) explaining how he's looking forward to wearing pants in his next role!

All in all, a really great (loooong) day watching movies. One thing, they need much more comfortable seats in the Alice Tully Hall if they expect people to sit for 10 hours of movies!!

And here's a movie of some great King Kong action from Peter Jackson and the rest of the crew! This video will be here as long as I have the room to host it, it is pretty big. One day I may just delete it!
