Over the past three weeks, Fathom Events had a special showing of The Lord of the Rings trilogy in their extended editions, one each weekend for June 14th, 21st, and 28th. The Lord of the Rings films, based on the books series by J. R. R. Tolkien, follow Frodo Baggins, a hobbit, on his adventure through Middle Earth to destroy the last of twenty powerful rings, forged to bring power to he/she who wears one. Each wearer of the ring is soon corrupted by the evil forces with which it possesses, and the movie’s adventure is both a battle on land against armies of Orcs and other evil creatures, as well as of the mind, in an attempt to thwart the call of evil. Until the ring is destroyed—only possible in the fires from which it was made, in the fires of Mount Doom, smack in the middle of antagonist, Sauron’s, territory—it will continue to be sought by those in power greedy enough to desire more. This trilogy is a fantasy adventure film series classic, gaining rave reviews across the world, a definite worthy use of your time, despite their length of about three hours each (for the non-extended versions).
Back to Fathom Events, a company that aims to set up “live one-night entertainment events, engaging business events, and even church worship” for the public to attend. Fathom Events puts on many different types of shows, including performing arts, sporting events, concerts, original shows, and classic films. Though they do cost money, they’re a great way to spend time and bring more culture into your life. Some things coming up in July include a live showing of Wimbledon, Giselle, many operas, the Israeli Philharmonic, and more.
If you’re looking for something to do this summer, or even past this summer into the year, this should definitely be on your list. And if you don’t want to spend the extra cash, you can recreate the movie theater experience at home with popcorn and sodas bought inexpensively from your local super market, such as Morton Williams.
