The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies (2014)
“Bilbo and Company are forced to be embraced in a war against an armed flock of combatants and the terrifying Smaug from acquiring a kingdom of treasure and obliterating all of Middle-Earth.”
I love movie marathons. This time, they have found a wonderful new incentive. The Hobbit marathon is the only way to see The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies early.
Five Armies officially opens on Wednesday, December 17th. This means that theaters will be playing early shows on Tuesday, December 16th BUT if you go to the marathon on Monday, December 15th then you get to see Five Armies on the 15th.
Regal is also pulling out the stops and putting the marathon in Imax and RPX theaters. Honestly, what else are people going to be doing on a Monday in mid-December. My assumption is that this will be at the HFR as well. Regal is also planning on issuing a coupon (for RCC members) for a $7 large combo because you will need those FREE refills during your eight and a half hour ordeal.
Epic, Cinemark, AMC, and several other chains are also participating in the marathon.
