FRIDAY FEATURE: 8 Reasons to Get Excited About Seeing the Entire Harry Potter Franchise in IMAX
Oct 6, 2016

Andrew Stewart | Manager, Corporate Communications

Attention IMAX—and Harry Potter—fans!

In case you missed it, we have exciting news: for the first time EVER, all eight Harry Potter films will screen in IMAX as part of an exclusive one-week engagement beginning October 13 in domestic IMAX® theatres.

*Breathe*

So, in celebration of this awesome announcement, we’ll be spotlighting eight reasons why you should be super excited. Lumos!

1-2.    The Originals: I’m kind of cheating here, but the fact that BOTH Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX® format and released in IMAX theatres for the first time EVER is kind of a big deal and really deserves two slots—one for each film.

3.        The Subsequent Six: While this will be the first opportunity to experience the first two Harry Potter installments in IMAX, we’re just as excited to be able to re-visit the six other films in the franchise in IMAX. Which is your favorite?

4.        Fan Event: Before you check out Harry Potter, Warner Bros. Pictures and IMAX are teaming up for an exciting global fan event on Oct. 13 in select IMAX theatres. At the event, fans can experience a never-before-seen reel from the highly-anticipated new film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as well as in-person appearances from talent from the film at two IMAX locations in London and L.A. and much more.

5.        Eddie & Company: Prior to each Harry Potter screening, audiences will be treated to specially recorded greetings from Eddie Redmayne and other Fantastic Beasts talent.

6.        Reel ‘Em In: For those who aren’t able to make the Fantastic Beasts fan event on October 13, audiences will still get the opportunity to experience the exclusive reel from the film during the weeklong Harry Potter engagement.

7.        Potter Your Way: Tickets for the engagement will be available through four separate admission packages: Single Ticket; Day Access (admittance to three or more shows in a single day); Four-Show Access (admittance to four shows any time, any day); and Festival Access (unlimited admittance throughout the event). Please check directly with your local IMAX for Day Access, Four-Show Access, and Festival Access tickets. Select locations only. Packages offered and pricing may vary by theatre.

8.        Worked Up for Wizards: Let’s be honest. The opportunity to return to J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World—culminating in the November 18th IMAX release of Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them—is an opportunity we’re all about. And what better way is there to prepare for Fantastic Beasts than by experiencing for the first time all eight Harry Potter films in IMAX?
