"For the Quest is achieved, and now all is over. I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things"
- Frodo Baggins, March 25, T.A. 3019, Orodruin
Now that the last Hobbit movie has had its Extended Edition released, we've come to it - the final release of the final movie.
This is it.
The End Of All Things.
It all ends on March 25, 2016.
For the last few months, here at the Welly-moot we have been planning the longest celebration yet; a Once-in-a-Lifetime, Ultra-Mega-Super-Marathon. All six extended movies in all their glory, in the best place in the known world to see it; the Roxy in Miramar.
Only, we're not doing it over the course of six weeks; we'll be there for over 24 hours, in a single sitting.
We've been in talks with Roxy to organise this gargantuan event. Tentatively, the plan is this: We get together on Thursday March 24th, 2016 (the day before Good Friday). An Unexpected Journey will begin at 2:00pm, with the Return of The King finishing around the same time on Good Friday.
Tickets will be around the $250 mark. Not a bad deal, for 6 movie tickets, 3 Roxy-quality meals, snacks, and staff to look after us for that length of time. Also, the theatre will be themed out for us, Roxy-style. We all know they're up to the job!
There WILL a few more surprise announcements coming, as soon as we confirm them.
Here's the crunch - we need your commitment to turn up! At this stage we will be taking names and email addresses of people who can commit to this event. This is a first-come-first-served event, with STRICTLY LIMITED SEATING. The Roxy isn't huge, and food needs to be ordered WELL in advance.
If you can make it to this event, please do the following:
- Send an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org", with a Subject of "The End Of All Things".
- Tell us how many tickets you want.
- Tell us a full name, and a working email address for EVERY TICKET REQUESTED
- Expect further announcements soon.
Once we have the required numbers confirmed, we will be asking people to pay the tickets in full, most probably before Christmas.
We will try to keep things fair - if you've been around for the last few Hobbit years, you know we had lots of people interested in past events, so please book early!
Also, please SHARE this page around on your social media, or print it out and pin it to the notice board at the office. There's also a Facebook page set up, so please share that one around also.
