As The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opens in wide release, Wehrenberg Theatres gives fans the opportunity to see the film in its proper context: as a complete trilogy. The Hobbit movie marathon features The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and is capped by Five Armies. Academy Award winner Peter Jackson directs this concluding chapter of Tolkien's beloved classic, in which Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and a company of courageous dwarves prepare for battle against vast armies of orcs and goblins. Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage star. The trilogy will be presented in 2-D and 3-D formats at participating Wehrenberg Theatres, as well as in IMAX 3-D at Ronnie's 20.
