One library to bind them all!

The Ontario City Library will screen all three “Lord of the Rings” movies, in their director’s cut versions, on three successive Thursdays. The festival is dubbed “LOTRthon 2.”

(Fans should hope the sequel goes better than “LOTRthon 1,” which was plagued by technical problems and, if memory serves, was unable to be completed.)

“Fellowship of the Ring” is this week, “The Two Towers” is Sept. 16 and “Return of the King” is Sept. 23. Admission is free but, since parental guidance is suggested, is limited to those 13 and up.

The movies screen from 4:15 to 8:45 p.m. The library advises: “Bring a pillow!” (The molded-plastic seats are not soft.)

  • And how do you find the entrance to the main library? Simple. Just look for the ring in the road.

    [Oh, yes, the roundabout. — DA]

    OMG this sounds so nerdy, and by “nerdy” I mean “how I would really love to be there if I didn’t have to teach on Thursday evenings.” I have a friend ALL RIGHT IT WAS ME who sat through a five-movie-long Star Trek film marathon in college called “Sit Long and Prosper.” Good times!

    I suppose it is safe now for the city of Ontario to show these now that Greg Devereaux is no longer city manager…notice how Greg and Smeegal are never seen together.

    [Hmmm. — DA]

    Er… “Smeagol.” Not that anyone’s keeping track or anything.

    [Understood. — DA]
