In recognition of beloved Indiana Jones actress Karen Allen's May 17 - 19 appearance at Motor City Comic Con, I'm geeked to host a Digital Code giveaway for her new movie A STAGE OF TWILIGHT courtesy of Cardinal Flix.

A STAGE OF TWILIGHT can also be rented or purchased on Amazon Prime.

A STAGE OF TWILIGHT is a love story set in the final chapter of Cora (Karen Allen) and Barry's lives. When Barry (William Sadler) is confronted with a terminal diagnosis, he is compelled to make a decision that his wife cannot support. This end-of-life struggle is heightened further when Joey, a neighbor boy who acts as a surrogate son to the childless couple, reaches a critical crossroads for his own future. The film explores whose right is it to make life's inevitable impossible decisions when the impact will be felt by the people we love most?

Fathom Events and Warner Bros. are hosting a movie marathon at theaters across the country so that fans to experience one of cinema’s most iconic fantasy epics, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, on the big screen once again. The movie marathon will take place at select theaters this June 8, 9 and 10. Each screening puts the spotlight on the remastered, extended editions of Peter Jackson’s Oscar®-winning adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels, kicking off with “The Fellowship Of The Ring” on June 8 at 4:00 p.m. local time, “The Two Towers” on June 9 at 4:00 p.m. local time, and “The Return Of The King” on June 10 at 7:00 p.m. local time. Tickets are available now on the Fathom Events website.

Fathom’s complete schedule for the “Lord Of The Rings” Trilogy is as follows: 

The Fellowship of the Ring” Extended Edition—Sat., June 8 

In the first part of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, a shy young hobbit named Frodo Baggins inherits a simple gold ring. He knows the ring has power, but not that he alone holds the secret to the survival—or enslavement—of the entire world. Now Frodo, accompanied by a wizard, an elf, a dwarf, two men and three loyal hobbit friends, must become the greatest hero the world has ever known to save the land and the people he loves. 

The Two Towers” Extended Edition—Sun., June 9 

In the part second of the Tolkien trilogy, Frodo Baggins and the other members of the Fellowship continue on their sacred quest to destroy the One Ring—but on separate paths. Their destinies lie at two towers—Orthanc Tower in Isengard, where the corrupt wizard Saruman awaits, and Sauron’s fortress at Barad-dur, deep within the dark lands of Mordor. 

The Return Of The King” Extended Edition—Mon., June 10 

In the conclusion of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, as armies mass for a final battle that will decide the fate of the world—and powerful, ancient forces of Light and Dark compete to determine the outcome—one member of the Fellowship Of The Ring is revealed as the noble heir to the throne of the Kings Of Men. Yet the sole hope for triumph over evil lies with a brave hobbit, Frodo, who, accompanied only by his loyal friend Sam and the hideous, wretched Gollum, ventures deep into the very dark heart of Mordor on his seemingly impossible quest to destroy the Ring of Power.
