Hobbitses Everywhere! – Dracula (1931), The Iron Giant, Hobbit Extended in Theaters

I am all in favor of bringing back classics to theaters so they can be seen again as they were meant to, on the big screen.

Hobbit Extended

However, Peter Jackson’s deeply flawed Hobbit trilogy does not qualify as classic. Still we hardly get any fantasy movies. To celebrate the release of The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies extended edition, Fathom Events is bringing the extended versions of all three Hobbit movies to the screen for one night each.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – 10/5 at 7:30

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – 10/7 at 7:30

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies – 10/13 at 7:30

Because these are Fathom events, be aware that you’ll pay a premium price.

The Iron Giant

Fathom Events is bringing The Iron Giant back to theaters in a newly remastered version with additional scenes.

The Iron Giant – 9/30 at 7 and 10/4 at 12 noon

Dracula

Finally, to end the month, TCM and Fathom are bringing us a double dose of Dracula. They will be showing the Bela Lugosi original and the Spanish version that was filmed at the same time on the same sets but with different actors.

Dracula – 10/25 & 10/28 at 2 and 7 p.m.

FREE Movie Tickets – Dracula Untold, Fury, Penguins of Madagascar

Yay! After quite a dry spell, it looks like the FREE movie offers are coming back.

Dracula Untold

At Wal-Mart, they have an endcap of Universal horror DVDs and Blu-Rays that have $7.50 movie money for Dracula Untold. This includes classic titles such as The Complete Frankenstein Legacy Collection as well as more modern fare such as the Brendan Fraser Mummy series. It is Fandango movie money so caveat emptor.

Fury

Fandango is offering a Buy One, Get One FREE deal on Fury. You have to go to one of the theaters that supports Fandango ticketing and pay their pesky fee but still a nice deal. AMC Stubs members have the ticket fee waived.

Penguins of Madagascar

Fox is re-releasing a bunch of its animated titles on October 21st. These will have movie money for the new Penguins of Madagascar film. Titles include: Kung Fu Panda 1 & 2, Madagascar 1 & 2, Shrek, Rise of the Guardians, and Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron.

* AMC Theaters have a coupon for a $1 large popcorn if you sign up on their Facebook page.

* Closer to Christmas, Warner will be rereleasing all of their Tolkien titles with movie money for the final Hobbit movie.
