The Harry Potter mania is
Apr 25, 2002
The Harry Potter mania is on full steam. And weekender Kids kids can add a smile to your kid, with their Harry Potter range of clothing and accessories (fancy school bags too), for the Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone in India. the collection comprises basic T-shirts, one with raglan sleeves and also logo t-shirts, caps and bags. So don’t miss out on the Potter fun this summer and check out all this stuff at the East Street and J M Road outlets.
For those with a canny eye, there is plenty of money to be made. First editions of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, of which only 500 were printed, are now worth between £8,000-£10,000, but even a seemingly worthless concrete garden gnome of Tony Blair can fetch £60 in an antiques shop.
For Famous Players — a company that prides itself on offering big screen, big sound entertainment to the masses — the idea that some people in the audience were only getting a fraction of the big screen experience didn’t sit well. As a result, Canada’s largest theatre chain decided to invest more than $1 million to outfit 50 theatres across the country with state-of-the-art hearing and sight-impaired technology, which they unveiled at a media preview in Metrotown Wednesday… “At the moment, we have five theatres in Ontario using the equipment, which we launched with the release of the Harry Potter movie. The response was overwhelming, and as a result, we’re now looking at bringing the equipment into 50 theatres across the country.”
