I've seen the films too many times to count, and I didn't buy the theatrical edition Blu-Rays because I was holding out for the Extendeds, but if you just can't wait and want to see these films again on the big screen, AMC Theatres has got your ticket. Three of them, actually.
According to TheOneRing and the AMC Theatres website, the Extended will be coming to theaters to ramp up for the Blu-Ray releases. We'll be getting THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING on June 14th, 2011, THE TWO TOWERS on June 21, 2011, and THE RETURN OF THE KING on the same day of the Blu-Ray releases, June 28th, 2011.
I'd love to be able to sit down in a theater and watch all three Extendeds - all the LOTR events I've seen don't play ROTK Extended, just the first two - for 12+ hours. I've been through several BNATs - my ass can take it. I'm assuming these will be the Blu-Ray transfers and not the film, which I'd prefer. But I'll settle for seeing these on the big screen again any way I can get it.
