Now that's dedication to drive so far! I suppose nothing more than flying 800 miles like I did last year to see ROTK at Wolf Trap with my sister and her lovely clan. I got my tickets a month ago assuming it would be sold out but the theatre was only half full which surprised me. I went alone too but parents and other sister will be coming with me to Ravinia in August - have you decided whether you are coming or not? yet? The music was louder in parts, but beyond that I really didn't notice a difference. Scary that it's been almost 10 years!! since I saw it in the theatre for the first and only time, having no idea how profoundly it would come to affect me. Looking forward to TTT and especially ROTK. Seriously overslept Wednesday after FOTR, imagine how late it will be after ROTK and it can't be any later since I have somewhere I must be. Listened to some of the soundtrack in the car before seeing it. Luckily the theatre is quite close by. I've missed your posts and glad to see another at last.

Namarie, God bless, Anne Marie :)

I'm so glad you got to see FOTR at a reasonable distance. Woo hoo! The films are playing at about four theatres in Minnesota, but they're all in the Twin Cities, alas. I don't think promoters figure there are enough people who'd want to see them again up here; they're probably right, although the three films played the multiplexes here each time for months.

I'll be skipping the Ravinia concert-to-film, Antane. I had decided that the price of the hotels and food and price of driving was such a lot, and I just didn't feel confident about seeing it in a pavillion with access to the outdoors like that. So I was going to forego seeing it. But now the performance is being offered in CA this fall. That changes everything. I'd been planning to go see jan-u-wine again since I met and stayed with her three years ago, to see Ian McKellen in King Lear. When she told me they were going to be doing the concert-to-film version of FOTR in Los Angeles, and did I want to come see it with her, staying with her for the event, I thought about it for about fifteen minutes, figuring out the finances, madly checking air fares on Yahoo Travel, and said, yes!
