EVERY Peter Jackson film deserves the IMAX 3D experience – and his latest film, The Hobbit, is no exception. Hieu Chau tells you how you can win TWO double passes to see the small hobbits on one of the biggest screens in Melbourne.

It has been nine years since audiences left Middle-earth but this holiday season, be prepared to return to the world director Peter Jackson made famous in The Lord of the Rings.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3D, planned as a prequel trilogy to Jackson’s widely revered The Lord of the Rings trilogy, will be showing in front of IMAX screens at the Melbourne Museum – a more than appropriate venue given the larger-than-life aesthetics that Jackson’s fantasy epics have always amounted towards.

The Hobbit takes place 60 years before Frodo’s journey to destroy The One Ring and tells the story of Frodo’s uncle, Bilbo Baggins (played by Martin Freeman of BBC television’s Sherlock) who also has an epic adventure of his own.

Melbourne Museum’s IMAX  is home to the third largest screen in the world and can be described as the definitive experience to catch all the latest sprawling blockbusters on the big screen.

Tickets to the IMAX screenings of The Hobbit have been selling quickly with sessions expected to sell out soon.

Luckily, Meld Magazine have two double passes to give away to lucky readers.

For everyone else, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3D opens nationally on December 26. For more information about IMAX screenings for the film, follow the link to visit their official website.
