Additional information is now online today, regarding tickets for the UK “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” Royal and European Premiere November 17th, 2008 in London, England. As we reported previously, The Royal Film Performance 2008 is sponsored by the Cinema & Television Benevolent Fund, a charity which benefits the UK film and TV industries, with members of the Royal family due to attend the event. With the information today, this marks the first time tickets are being made available to a Harry Potter movie premiere. The charity website has now been updated regarding these various ticket prices, including a rare opportunity to purchase advertising for the commemorative booklet, which will also give you the chance to purchase tickets for four to attend the Premiere and private post party event with the Royal family, as well as members of the HBP cast and crew. Tickets for this are extremely limited, and cost £7,000 ($14,000 USD). A package involving tickets for two is set at £4800. For more on these options, click here.

Other ticket options include a red-carpet event, with screening of the sixth Harry Potter film at an “Adjoining Cinema” of the Royal event, will cost £200 ($400 USD per person), a smaller screen “Adjoining Cinema” for 175, with these tickets due on sale August 8. Two other opportunities for this event include a “Near Simultaneous Screening” which takes place an hour later for £60 ($120 USD), and a “Late Night Screening” which takes place after the Main Royal Premiere, at £25 ($50 USD) with tickets for these two events due to become available starting September 8th.

I know there was a reason on my I couldn’t attend the event. Did you look at how much the event cost???

Avatar Image says:

wish i lived in the UK and i had enough money

sigh

Avatar Image says:

I was very tempted to go to this, but I don’t think my budget can stretch to £175. I’ll wait til it goes on general release and stage my own little premiere. ;)

Avatar Image says:

I wonder if Dan will be in attendance and what these premieres mean for his performances in Equus on Broadway.

Avatar Image says:

I think I’d pay to go to the Late Night Screening if there was any chance I’d be in the UK at that time.

Unfortunately, there’s an ocean to cross, and that’s a tiny bit more expensive.

Avatar Image says:

I can’t see that Dan would be able to make it for the premiere in London. Though I guess in theory, he could fly home after the 3pm Sunday show, and fly back to NY Tuesday morning in time for the 7pm show that evening, though it’d be a killer trip.

Avatar Image says:

Oh yea lemme just blow 14,000 bucks that I have flowing around in my vaults :P Even the adjoining cinema is mad expensive. Thanks but I think I’ll wait to pay my $9 at a midnight showing.

Avatar Image says:

yeah, thats all very nice but I think I’ll pay $8 here in Croatia. its the same film anyway :D

Avatar Image says:

i wish i was £5000 richer!!! be amazing to attend!

Avatar Image says:

14,000? Holy….

Avatar Image says:

What??? Why??? How many Harry Potter fans do you know with £4,000??? That’s cruel. They should give people a realistic opportunity to attend. The Royal Family are going for free and they’re the only ones who can afford it! That’s exploitation. Grumbles off entertaining ideas of breaking into Gringotts

Avatar Image says:

I know it doesn’t seem fair, but at least it does go to charity. I will wait and go with my poor friends and we will have a smashing time.

Avatar Image says:

I wish I lived in UK!! but it still cost a lot of money!!! so I guess I’ll just wait a little longer to see it in my little town :(

Avatar Image says:

I feel sad, I really want go :( , but the price is really expensive…:(

Avatar Image says:

okay, I think it’s going to be just the Imax for me.

Avatar Image says:

Wait- we can’t go to the one when the actors go? Unless we’re rich? and what does the site mean – advertisers only? Bah!

That’s poo.

I went to the Prince Caspian one, and we even went down the red carpet with them! I walked down the carpet with Anna Popplewell, for goodness sake! And a ticket was £30! Ugh.

Avatar Image says:

wow! if i lived in the UK i would SO go!! (even tho i probablly couldn’t aford it! ) :P

Avatar Image says:

damn wishes she didnt live in florida!!!

Avatar Image says:

That’s really expensive, like the previous person who posted, i went to the price caspian premiere and tickets were between £12 and £50. I know these films are bigger but £200 or £175 is very excessive!

Avatar Image says:

Well the point is to raise money so the cost is very understandable.

Avatar Image says:

i want to go ;-; but even if i could afford one of the packages, i’d have to pay for my flight to the UK and…that’s a lot ._.

Avatar Image says:

hi, I am from Georgia! In my country movie ticket cost is 4 or 5 $!

Avatar Image says:

dan will defo go to the london one, its ovo more important to him, he is english i so wish i could go but i dont have money, ill just wait til the 21st, its only 4 more days

Avatar Image says:

Well unless I misunderstand it the charity money is going to the UK film and television industries…why isn’t it going to a more pressing cause?

Avatar Image says:

That’s… really very expensive. I’m definitely not about to fork out that much for tickets- however much I might want to… I always love watching the live stream of the premieres online though, they’re always such awesome-looking events. :D

Avatar Image says:

I’m just going to the midnight show in my hometown. I’ll have my Luna Lion hat and my Weasley is My King pin….ready to go.

P.S. The Lion hat will actually roar!

Avatar Image says:

Damn! i wish i lived in the UK. But im sure that even if i did i couldnt afford that . 14,000 jeez…...

Avatar Image says:

Sounding like a broken record here, but $14000?? I don’t know. If it was going to a charity like World Vision, I might not mind as much, but as far as I’ve heard, the British film industry isn’t suffering nearly as much as the Australian one. Oh well.

BUT what makes my blood boil is that we Aussies get the movie on the 11th of December (nearly 3 weeks later). What’s the money they’re going to pull another stunt on us where they push the release date earlier with about, oh, six weeks to go? (Like LAST TIME?)

sigh at least Dec 11th is my birthday, so seeing the movie will be a nice present…

Avatar Image says:

Let’s all kidnap some good stars, fly them to America, and have our own party?

We can buy red wrapping paper, can’t we???

Avatar Image says:

Holy cow…$14,000! Still, I d be happy sleeping in the UK rain on a cold night just to glimpse the lovley Dan Radcliffe! And the handsome Jason Issacs! Id be a drooling fool!

Avatar Image says:

I love HP, and all, but… Yeah, 14,000 dollars is a bit much for a movie ticket…

Avatar Image says:

I’m glad HBP had been chosen for this Event, but the price is exagerated. Also the alternatives they are offering.

I am happy to see the movie here in Mexico for $7,- on IMAX screen, We normaly get it the same date as in US.

Anyway for me the books are much more important than the movies, so I am not in a great hurry to see HBP, I din’t liked the trailer with the Riddle kid

Avatar Image says:

Its selling advertising guys! not just tickets, you have to have something to place in the programme! like services or some such thing! Basically u buy the advertising and know celebs and the royla family will see it and they give you tickets as a thank you! its not for average joes to buy!

Avatar Image says:

That’s insane!It costs less to see Dan naked! :D

Avatar Image says:

Er, I don’t know if people noticed, but for the people who are grumbling about the expensive pricing of £7,000 ($14,000 USD) and £4800—it’s for ADVERTISERS ONLY on the Official Commemorative Brochure. You’re placing an ad for your company…marketing opportunity = $$$.

General Screenings are between £25 and £200…. I’d go to the £25 late night showing if I was in the UK…

Avatar Image says:

The graphics are awful, i’d never buy it. Even with the Wii’s motion controll they can’t cover up the squares..

Avatar Image says:

i bet Madonna or David Beckham will buy a ticket for their kids:D

Avatar Image says:

I’m holding out for a member of the Royal Family or the stars of the show to have a weird dream and be compelled to find me and invite me as their guest! Or if I’m really lucky I could win the lottery but the odds are pretty slim on that.

Avatar Image says:

wow…tht’s a lot of money!!i suppose-main cast attend-it’s their movie and the royals too..but it’s really too expensive for many fans to go,unless they’re rich!luckily the red carpet one is much more affordable..and isnt some stuffy/royal attended event! bet the post party-cast/royals is gonna be such a proper affair..at least till the royals..’leave’...lol.then i bet the potter stars will really let go!

Avatar Image says:

i live in the uk, few hour drives from it all, only problem, even if i empty my bank account, i couldn’t even get half a ticket.

Avatar Image says:

I will purchase my tickets straightaway. I am not ashamed to admit that 14 grand is nothing but a penny to my family. I think I’ll stay over there for a month get some sights in. jk Seriously even if I could afford to get a ticket I very much doubt I would, not for that price. What can I say I have always be sort of frugal when it comes to some things no way would I ever pay 14 grand to see a movie, not even Harry Potter.

Avatar Image says:

Or I could just go to the cast and crew screening for free a week before?

Avatar Image says:

this is brilliant but i dont think i will spend this much i’m quite happy to watch in a normal cinema lovely thought though

Avatar Image says:

OMG – even though I live in the UK I can’t go but I wish I had Harry’s invisabiity cloak then I could sneak in!! I wanna go so badly – like everyone else is saying I’ll just go and see all the spare cash I have in my vault :p (that’s soooo unfair!)

I guess I’ll just have to watch the premiere on youtube! And go and see the film in cineworld with my poor friends!

xxxx

Avatar Image says:

:/ i think i’ll just be in the crowd asking for autographs. what time is this premiere going to be??

Avatar Image says:

cost £7,000 ($14,000 USD) that is a hell of a lot of muny lol i would never be able to get that sort of muny lol

Avatar Image says:

event if it would cost one ten thousand dollars I would go but actually I’m only 15 so my parents won’t agree but it’s okay for 200£ si I’ll go :p yeaaaah a french who spend 220€o see HARRY POTTERE AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE ( YES I’m french :p) I’m so happy :D

Avatar Image says: "really expensive" is an understatement!!!! This pricing is ridiculous who would actualy pay that money just to attend a premier and after party that people who know people can get for free! You could probably be in the film for that much money! You people are mad if you pay that!
