It’s been 15 years since Return of the King was released, capping off the original Lord of the Rings trilogy. While dedicated fans likely have the 4K Ultra HD box set (in addition to a wizard’s staff, the LOTR-themed Risk game, and countless other collectibles), there’s only one time of year to catch all 730 minutes on the big screen in Minneapolis. The annual Riverview Theater trilogy event starts at 10:45 a.m. and runs through a full day, pausing for breaks between extended-version screenings of each film. Put on a costume (there will be a contest for the best looks), get out of the cold, and escape to a fantasy world for a day.
