The Hobbit~Desolation of Smaug Midnight Movie Release & Late Supper

Attention Hobbits, Elves, Wizards, and Dwarves,


The LADA will be having a meetup at the The Grove LA for the midnight release of The Hobbit, December 12th.  We will be meeting for a late supper at Short Order at The Grove then head over to Pacific Theaters in the same complex and see the midnight release of The Desolation of Smaug.  

Purchase tickets for the 12:05a, non3D show in theater 1. You can find it at the following link: 

http://www.fandango.com/pacifictheatresatthegrove_aaqgt/theaterpage?date=12/12/2013.

If the link does not go directly to the page for The Hobbit go to the date pull down menu at the top of the page and select Dec 12th. The Hobbit is the only movie that is on sale for that date. Pick the 12:05a show.

We will be having late supper at Short Order LA (also at The Grove). The human owners of Short Order are eager to have us as guests and welcome all of Middle Earth to partake in their delicious food and drink before we set off to meet Bilbo in Erebor. After our feast we will pack our horses and walk over to the theaters.

Since this is a public venue, no dues will be collected at this event.

 

***Please note 9:00pm start time is for dinner and the movie is a midnight screening.***

    Great time! Dinner was fantastic (and an exercise in math skills) and as always, the LADA are the best to see movies with.

    Quick question--any brilliant ideas about parking? I'm planning to get there a bit early to see if I can get a Christmas gift for my niece. I notice we get 4 hours validation at the theatre, but the movie must be running until--oh, wow, until almost 3. Better take a NAP. And it says parking jumps to 2.00 every 30 minutes after that, so I'm figuring---seven hours? Anyhoo, I always expect the worst and I'm willing to expect it, but if anyone wants to translate what this parking rates thing actually means, I'd sure appreciate it.

      I think I might validate my parking after dinner, move my car, then validate after the movie. It'll be a bit of a pain but it should be cheaper than $24 for 7 hours.

      Eh--I think I'll just suck it up. Maybe I'll do what you're doing and move the car, but I'm not carpooling. I did park roughly "in the area" back a zillion years ago when I was at an event and it was kind of a spooky walk.

    It's Hobbit Eve! This is just a reminder to make sure you RSVP for dinner so we have a head count for the restaurant. They're reserving a space for us so I want to make sure we don't hold up tables that we're not going to use and that we have enough seats for everyone. See you tomorrow!

      lol of course I'm going to dinner. I'd be a pretty ornery hobbit if I had to watch you guys eat from outside or something

  • Ruben

    I'd like to join you for the late supper, but maybe not the movie ... except maybe I'd go for the 3D version and still be able to re-meetup with y'all afterwards...

    [ AAA, I'd like to pay you the MDs in person, because PayPal right now is not being magical. :P ]

    See you there LADA! ~8-)
