The theater goers attending the AMC Lincoln Square midnight screening of Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in NYC got a surprise visit from Gandalf himself, Ian Mckellan. Watch the crowd go wild as Ian thanks everyone and says hello.

The crowd went wild of course. No sign of Patrick Stewart though. Unless he was in another theater, perhaps crashing a screening of Tyler Perry‘s A Madea Christmas screening.

The two are currently starring at the Cort Theater in No Man’s Land and Waiting for Godot and have been delighting the Internet with a series of selfies around Manhattan.

What an incredible experience for that crowd. Sir Mckellen is a class act.
