Entertainment :: In Depth - The Hobbit: An Expected Journey
· 12:31pm January 24th, 2013
Loyal Middle-earth dwellers and ring lovers return to the fantasy world created by J.R.R. Tolkien, and now Peter Jackson, in “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”
Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey, and Gollum play the Palace Friday, January 25 through Thursday, February 1 at 7 pm, and Monday, January 28 at 2 pm. “The Hobbit,” in glorious RealD 3D, is rated PG-13 runs a staggering two hours and 50 minutes.
We’re expecting stellar crowds again this week, so be sure to purchase your tickets in advance at the theatre or online at www.vintonpalace.org. Doors open one hour before the show.
Due to the current popularity of “Lincoln,” we are fortunate to have this film before the Oscars. It is an unusual year for the Academy Awards, as many of the nominated movies have been big box office sellers, well loved by national audiences.
As a result, the Palace has already screened several Oscar-nominated pictures, including “Argo,” “Flight,” “Skyfall,” and “Cloud Atlas.” In February, we will show “Life of Pi,” as well as “Jack Reacher,” “Parental Guidance,” and “Gangster Squad.”
Unfortunately, we were unable to get the much-requested “Les Miserable,” but will ask for that film for our annual March Oscar Month. We will also be asking for “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Django.” See you on the red carpet!
