From Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” the first of a trilogy of films adapting the ever-popular masterpiece “The Hobbit,” by J.R.R. Tolkien.
According to the film, “The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the wild.”
We are giving away 15 pairs of movie passes to an advanced screening of the film at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11 at the Walden Galleria Regal Cinemas.
