Hobbit Hoedown: ‘Fellowship' 15th Anniversary Party

Don your shire-sweet cloak and trek for Cinépolis.

Take a moment and trundle through your Hobbit-hole, walking past the cozy fireplace and wooden dining room table as you whistle along. Then find the ancient trunk where you store your old day-planners, the ones you used back in 2001.

If you turn the parchment pages to December, you may see that you spent the 19th day of that month inside a magical movie space, a space that held an enchanted screening of "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." 

This was the first of the three-film phenomenon from director Peter Jackson, a hugely successful, hugely loved, and hugely Hobbit-y series that would go on to spur three more films about one Bilbo Baggins ("The Hobbit" flicks, yes).

The Scene

What to do, where to go and what to see

A Valley Drive-In Will Cinema-up September

Pink's Hot Dogs Is Reopening

But "Fellowship" first launched the grand and Gollum-y journey to Mordor, an adventure that shall be remembered and celebrated at Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas Westlake Village on Wednesday, Dec. 7.

The film will screen, yes, in all of its Frodo-fantastical, Aragorn-awesome majesty, but there shall be other doings worthy of a Shire-style soiree. Plan for "a LOTR-themed reception, photo ops, concession specials, surprise giveaways and a limited edition event poster" to be a part of the precioussss party.

The credits flicker on-screen beginning at 8 o'clock, but arrive an hour earlier to jump into the elfin event (and don't forget your Hobbit cloak or Gandalf hat, if you own one). 

Just don't forget to jot down the date and time info in your parchment-paper planner, the one you keep inside the ancient trunk in the den of your cozy and adorable Hobbit-hole.
