Eye So, who's throwing a party?

This is it! RotK is on the way! I want to know who's having a LotR "movie party" in December, and what it's going to be like. Costumes? Games? Poetry, perhaps? My LotR friends are coming from New Jersey to Virginia, and we're looking to have a great costume-wearin' movie-goin' Elf-talkin' event! Planning such things helps us survive the wait, ya know! So, what are YOU doing?

Denethor and I are celebrating together. Not a proper party, just sitting around and talking about the film. And maybe getting drunk and setting fire to ourselves for a laugh.

Sounds like fun! How come you keep going on about fire, though, Meela? I keep hearing your name in conection with Denethor and/or fire!

Haha! I and my friend are all planning to dress up as the cast of Lord of the Rings for ROTK (We're going on Dec. 18th since we have midterms that week, and they end on the 18th). Of course, if I have very easy exams on that Thursday, then my parents just might let me and my brother dress up and go on the 17th to see the movie.

Greetings all! I'm new here...but since I can't go to Trilogy Tuesday in Tulsa...(which is quite far already), I think I'm going to have a party with my obsessive friends, costumes and all...then we chill at my hobbit hole, watch both EE's, and the its off the the MALL, of course, we'll see RotK first, but then, I think we'll impulsively walk aroud the mall and see how many people recognize us...fun fun...anyone have good costume patterns? well, laters!

KANGA LINE! dudududududu....<BR>I'm hosting a very festive party on the 17th...we go to the primier and party all night. No costumes though, that would be uncomfortable, so we're going as Men of the future. I don't know how entirely LOTR based, the after party will be, but it will be made up of all my favourite LOTR loving friends. I tried to invite one friend in particular(ahem,*shuffles feet*) but he's going to bloody Victoria to see it on a bigger screen and therefor will be bloody far away, too far to attend my party. Sigh, I'll-I mean we'll sure miss him.

If I were to even mention a Lord of the Rings party to my friends I would be ridiculed. They just don't understand my obsession, so I keep it under wraps. I guess I will be celebrating all alone, except for my imaginary friends, Ted and Mike. I'm such a loner when it comes to LotR. I bet I'll even endup going to see it on my own. Oh, woe is me...

I'll come to your party, if you have an imaginary friend named Rachael,or make one.<BR>but, yeah, it's pretty pathetic about people not understand about that too.<BR>I wouldn't have anyone come to my party either.

Considering I was lucky enough to get tickets for trilogy Tuesday (Murphy was a good boy and didn't interfere either money wise or sale-of-tickets wise) I'd consider that party enough.

I'm the leader of the Edinburg, TX Line Party (at the Carmike Theater) at theonering.net so people, if you're interested and live anywhere near Edinburg, PLEASE join! I just gave the current members the boot because they haven't talked to me, or given me any reason to believe that they're alive, for the past couple of months. I really need a few members!<P>I was planning on arranging for a collective Line Party get-together to see RotK on Dec. 18th (because that's when midterms let out for me) so if anyone knows anyone, or anyone wants to go, please email me or sign up!<p>[ November 11, 2003: Message edited by: Finwe ]

Like Finwe, I am the administrator for the Chicago Line Party. We are having a big all-day event in Chicago that will have costumes, prizes, games...etc. It should be a lot of fun! To learn more about us you can check out our website: <A HREF="http://www.elvishinspirations.com/lineparty" TARGET=_blank>http://www.elvishinspirations.com/lineparty</A> <P>I, myself, am actually going to be in Toronto for The Gathering of the Fellowship... that's a HUGE event! You can read about it here: <A HREF="http://www.tolkiengathering.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.tolkiengathering.com</A> <BR>Luckily, I have some really wonderful Line Party members to be the masters of ceremonies on the 16th in Chicago

1420!

We have four LOTR-liking friends coming over for our own trilogy day. Mostly it involves running the first two movies, having a great deal of hobbit-type food (ample, in other words), and then going to catch ROTK.<P>The only catch is that with their academic schedules we won't be able to do this until two days after it opens. Aargh! How will I stand it? (The group thing should make up for it though).

I feel your pain, Kalimac. Due to my academic schedule and the schedules of my friends, we probably won't be able to go as a group to see it until a day after it comes out. Hopefully, though, my parents will be understanding, and let me go see it on the 17th even though I have midterms the next day. I'm just praying that I have two easy ones, that way I won't have to study for them.

I'm dying to go on the 17th, but nobody will go with me, and I don't have a car! AAARGH!!! Can you imagine? Oh, well. It's not like I'd be able to find tickets anyway.<P>Hey, does anyone know if there's gonna be a midnight showing in Richmond, Virginia? That would be so cool!<P>Kate's

The problem is that this IMAX is like 5 hrs away,and the movie starts at 9, I won't get home until...5:00? I dunno. As a die-hard LOTR fan once said, "There's not too high a price to pay for LOTR."

A friend of mine is throwing a TTT EE party later this month, we'll have a pizza making contest (he's rather competitive...) and then watch the movie. He's making plans for the same group to go to see RotK together, but so far I don't know about doing anything besides meeting up at the theatre. I seriously doubt any of us will be costumed.
