We’re still a few months away from the premiere of the fourth season of Game of Thrones, so if you’re looking for a way to kill some time, and you like free stuff, and you live in or plan on traveling to the American Southwest, and you don’t mind standing in line, and you have an interest in watching the first three seasons of Game of Thrones with series creator George R.R. Martin and other superfans of the show, or you just want to sit Martin down and explain that it is very, very important to you that he finish the next book as soon as possible, and maybe he shouldn’t be making appearances at three-plus-hour weekly screenings on nights that could have been spent in front of his computer, then I have excellent news for you.
From the website for Martin’s theater, the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Sante Fe, New Nexico:
With the blessings of HBO, the Jean Cocteau is proud to present the first three seasons of HBO’s hit series THE GAME OF THRONES in their entirety over a 12-week period.
