Silmaril How many times are you going to see ROTK?

I was wondering how many times people plan to see Return of the King(in the movie theater). I am going at least 4 times maybe more depending on how much money i have left after I finish Christmas shopping! Its expensive to go to the movies $9 per ticket!

ti depends on how good the movie is. I saw FoTR about 10 times in theaters but i saw TTT only about 5 times. If this is 5 times better than FoTR and 10 times better than TTT then i will see it about 15 times. Jeez, i really have no life besides school, warcraft and LoTR. lol

At least 4 - I doubt anyone will want to go with me more than that cuz I'll start quoting and they'll start hitting and I don't particularly want to go by myself... though, if the movie's good enough (which I'm sure it will be)I may "force" myself to go by myself - oh what a chore (did I mention I'm kinda co-dependent )

I will probably see it about 6 or 7 times. That is how many times I saw both TTT and FOTR. But it will all depend on how good it is (I highly doubt that it will suck though )<P>I guess I am lucky because my local theater still only charges $5.50 for matinees, and $7 something in the evenings. I never go to the shows that start in the evenings because I would be there really late, and that just doesnít work with my schedule.

Five at least! I already have two pre-ordered tickets, and I'm going soon to get more. I have to wait to see how good it is to go more than five times. I guess I have noe life besides school, warcraft, and LotR, too.<P>Burzdol

I plan to see it twice in theaters (separated by at least a month) as I have done for both of the previous installments. That way it is truly a delight when the DVD finally comes out.

1,000,000 times... In my dreams. Probably 4 times in theatres, possibly more depending on my finances...

I went to see FOTR on oppening day and then I waited till around March for the buzz to die down and saw it 4 times on the first show of the day during the weekday.And it got real lucky on the 3rd viewing,I was the only one in the whole theatre,that was to cool!<P>Then on TTT I went on oppening day and was going to do the same thing and wait till around late Febuary or early March to go see it but the stupid theatres end up taking it out by then So I had to wait untill May to see it one more time at the dollar show.<P>So now were at ROTK,my brother and I are going to the noon show oppening day,and after that im going to wait just until mid January this time and go see it another 3 or 4 times and then maybe once at the dollar show to tide me over till the regular DVD comes out.

Well it all depends on how well it is done. I saw the FotR 5 times in theatres, but I only saw TTT 2 times. I'm hoping that the RotK will be better than the TT. If so, I can plan on watching it at least 3 times.

12.<P>I saw Fotr 10 and TTT 11 times, so it's logical to see it twelve times.<P>But I think I'll end up going around 15-20 times, what with the whole Denethor thing.<P>Plus, I'm going on the 17th, 19th/20th, and the 22nd alone, so I've got plenty of time to fit in a lot more viewings, since it'll be in the cinemas for a good while.

Hm... Let me count. Once with my English class, once by myself, once with a friend in another city (possibly also going with her for the marathon, if it's going on up there; it isn't here), maybe once with another friend. That makes four times. If I want to see it again, though, I think I will. ~_^ <P>This will certainly be more than I saw the other ones. For both FotR and TTT, I went twice. But RotK was always my favorite of the books, so it's justified. Can't afford to go much more than that, anyway.

As many times as I can. I'm sure it will be good so that isn't a concern for me. I just hope they don't change too much. That would be a bummer and could have an effect on how many times I see it. But I can at least say twice.

Depends on the quality, but I'm betting on twice at least. The real pain for me is not getting to see it until the 20th - argh! Going to have to hide my eyes from the movie board for a few days.

Okay, you've all said how many times you're gonna see it... Now how many times have you seen it so far, 2 weeks after it came out?<P>I'm only at 2, but I'm planning on beating my Pirates of the Carribean total (11), plus I got a $50 gift card to the movies (Score!)

I've already seen it 5 times ( ) due to a very indulgent aunt who is visiting me right now . I plan to see it as many times as I can, even though my parents are getting rather snarky about it. They aren't exactly the most understanding of people, especially when it comes to my little "oddities."

I've only seen it twice so far, but there will be many more viewing for me. The problem is getting people to come with...I have to try to ration my friends out. And also my mom, "You've already seen it eight times, why are you going again??" But I've managed with the others, so I'll see this one quite a few more times as well.

Only two... I might get my parents to go with me twice more, but not for a while. And then I might be able to go with friends several times. I'm hoping to see it in theaters five times, maybe more. Problem is, I can't go by myself, seeing as I can't drive and all, so I have to rely solely on other's tolerance (and, for the most part, on their pocketbooks, too).

Probably twice, didn't see the fellowship in the cinema at all and I saw TTT once so twice is a nice progression.

3, because I saw FOTR 3 times TTT 3 times, and now I must see ROTK 3 times, already seen it twice just once more and my mission will be complete. (But of course I saw each many many times when I got them on DVD lol) And if I see ROTK more times that's fine too!
