The Hobbit

Tuesday, October 17, 2023; 9am or 1pm
Play · Approx. Run Time: 90 minutes

Before The Lord of the Rings, there was The Hobbit. Join Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf and Thorin Oakenshield on their legendary quest to reclaim the dwarves’ ancestral home from the sinister dragon Smaug. From the Shire, to the Battle of the Five Armies, to deep underground—where a twisted creature guards his “precious” ring—Bilbo’s journey through Middle-earth abounds with peril, unparalleled adventure, and a healthy helping of Hobbit humor.
