Why aren't some of the movies they were playing last year in the schedule?

Some of the films were premieres and were special-event type presentations, like THE LORD OF THE RINGS movies. I am sure they will eventually return to TCM's airwaves. Maybe next year's Oscar schedule. If they showed the same films year after year, people would revolt. There needs to be a bit of variety.

"You've had a few hours given back to you from life. A few hours in which to change your minds and your hearts. When you came into the grounds of this inn, you came into a place as it was a year ago today. You were in your own time, but the house and garden and Gwyneth and I are in the time of last year. The day the bomb hit. When you go away and walk up the road you will have spent a night in an inn. But if you look back from the crest of the hill, the halfway house will not be here...but if you remember, it will be as you remember a forgotten snatch of song. It will be a picture before your eyes. Gone before you realize it is there. Or an echo in the hidden places of your mind. But you have been here...and the world is what you make it." -- Mervyn Johns, THE HALFWAY HOUSE.

Last year I just left TCM playing 24/7 during their '31 days of oscars', and saw some amazing movies for the first time; I just looked over the schedule for this year though, and at least half of my favorites from last year are missing - The Sand Pebbles, and The Lord of the Rings for instance.

Is there some other time during the year I'll get to see them?
