Get your Hobbit feet dusted off and look for a cinema near you that allows you to light up your finest South Farthing pipe weed in your clay pipes to enjoy it with the greatest realistic experience...:)

A party of us has booked the entire VIP seating for our Hobbit adventure. I'm just a little disappointed that pipe weed and second breakfasts aren't allowed while watching, but Hobbit feet and pointy hats are allowed...

I'm going right out on a limb here, but I take it you're a bit of a fan?

I wonder if, in the film, Thorin sits down and starts singing about gold.

I would think only briefly, today's audience won't have much time for all the rhyme sections. I've been listening to the LOTRs audiobooks recently and was surprised just how much rhyming verse is in there, especially when the reader (Rob Inglis) does it in a Shakespearian luvie style.

I am very surprised that the powers-that-be have allowed a full-length promotional advert for THE HOBBIT of Bilbo holding a very lethal-looking weapon [ie. a small sword] accompanied by a steely gaze, in BUS SHELTERS.Some inhabitants of Modern Earth may get the wrong idea.
