Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC), a leading motion picture exhibitor owning and operating the largest theatre circuit in the United States, announces the return to Middle-earth with a special marathon event of Lord of the Rings movies for fans to experience the complete trilogy in anticipation of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Additionally, Regal will showcase Peter Jackson’s latest work in a special 3D presentation at 48 frames per second on 97 screens around the country.
