The Nashville Public Library still has lots to see and do for the month of January.

All three movies from Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” trilogy will be shown on Thursdays in January.

Martin Freeman stars in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” trilogy, wich will be shown at The Nashville Public Library on Thursdays in January, starting on Thursday, January 11, when “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” will be shown starting at 6:30 p.m.

First up is “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”, which will be played on Thursday, January 11, at 6:30 p.m.

“An Unexpected Journey” is rated PG-13 and has a 169 minute running time.

This adventure film details the first adventures of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, as he begins a journey with the wizard Gandalf, played by Ian McKellen, and the dwarf warrior Thorin Oakenshield, played by Richard Armitage, to the Lonely Mountain, a dwarven kingdom taken over by an evil dragon, Smaug, voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch.

“An Unexpected Journey” is the first of the three “Hobbit” movies, which take place approximately 60 years before the events of Jackson’s acclaimed “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy released in 2001 to 2003.

Together, the three “Hobbit” films adapt J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” to the screen and act as a prequel for the “Lord of the Rings” movies.

“An Unexpected Journey” was followed by “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”, which will be shown at the Library on Thursday, January 18, and by “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”, which will be shown on Thursday, January 25.

On the last Monday and Tuesday of January – Monday, January 29 and Tuesday January 30 – the lapsit and story time reading programs for toddlers and young children will start up again after the holiday break. If your kids like reading or being read to, they won’t want to miss lapsit and storytime!
