You've waited five long years since Peter Jackson first announced that he would serve as executive producer on The Hobbit. A lot of things have happened since then, including the coming and going of Guillermo del Toro as director due to scheduling, and ultimately Peter Jackson signing on to direct a full-blown trilogy himself. The wait is finally over. Tickets for The Hobbit are now on sale!
Here are the various formats that the film will be screening in. If you don't see showtimes for your local theater, don't panic. Theaters will be adding showtimes throughout the month.

hey what if the theaters in my area have showings for 2D and regular 3D but none for the HFR 3D format? Should i bother waiting for a HFR 3D showing in my area or should i go ahead and bye the tickets available?
Click that link in the fourth paragraph that takes you over to OneRing. If you don't see a theater in your area showing the film in HFR, then you'll probably want to get your tickets for regular 2D or 3D. Also, call your local theaters to see if they will be showing the film in HFR 3D.

Wow, that's a nice selection of moviie Screens/formats to visulize/see the new HOBBIT film: I at least would see it at least on two the IMAX and 2D for sure. Maybe 3D!! Can't wait.
I'm going to see it in imax 3D!
My town doesnt sell tix yet will I mis out on Opening day?
No, more theaters are getting showtimes soon.
Thank you :)
So if it says no showtimes available for my theater that means I can't buy tix yet correct?
This is just the first wave of show times. We'll be adding new times throughout the month as theaters send them in to us. Keep checking back or sign up for a Fan Alert to know when show times in your area have been added.
Are the high frame rate the 70 frame one?
its 48fps not 70fps.
What Terry said. 48 fps is essentially double the regular speed a film exhibits in (24 frames per second). Ideally, 48 fps is supposed to create a crisper image since there's twice as many frames running per second. 70mm refers to the size of the image on the screen. It's slightly wider than the more common 35mm and features a higher resolution and cleaner image.
Didnt let me show it but go to theonering.net and look for the link.
I cant find anything close to me yet but here is a complete listing of theaters nationwide
Looks like a false alarm. The tickets aren't available in my area yet even though the email alert says they are.
I am so pleased to see that Peter Jackson has been able to make these Hobbit movies for us all to enjoy. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy was so good and the extended versions of those films were even better. It will be very exciting to see the return of many of the cast from those movies to bring their characters to these Hobbit films. I got my ticket just a little while ago. of course, for the IMAX 3D version! Very excited!
i cant find find tickets :(
Don't worry. This is just the first wave of show times being released. We'll be adding new times throughout the month as theaters send them in. Keep checking back. :)
Which theaters in US are showing it in IMAX HFR 3D?
Great question! I just updated the post. You'll find the link for theaters showing the film in HFR, IMAX, IMAX 3D and Dolby Atmos in the fourth paragraph.
Ya I've already seen that list. It Only shows those 5 formats. It doesn't show the theaters showing IMAX HFR 3D.
There's no official list from IMAX or WB stating which theaters are screening in IMAX HFR 3D, but screenings are very limited for this format. If we hear back from either company, we'll update within this post.
Is it possible that any showings listed as "IMAX 3D" are actually HFR IMAX 3D but it hasn't been listed as such yet? I am curious if my local imax will have HFR or not.
LOL. I would be pissed. I already got HFR tickets. But I did call the IMAX where I live if the IMAX version was indeed HFR and the manager said no. So I doubt the IMAX 3D version is shown in HFR.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
