In a new press release, Warner Bros has announced that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: The 3D IMAX experience is the widest IMAX international release ever, opening in 62 theaters internationally. As stated before, three cities here in the US will see the film open in IMAX tomorrow, with more due to follow shortly. The piece also reminds us: “In IMAX(R) 3D theatres, the film will feature approximately 12 minutes
of the movie’s explosive opening sequence exclusively in live-action
IMAX 3D, a special element fans last enjoyed in the final fight scene
in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in 2007.” To see the entire list of International venues, click here.

Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: I wish I could go to one. But there arent any IMAX theaters near me.Avatar ImageThe Hufflepuff Giraffe says: Awesome! I never got to see OotP in IMAX 3D so this should be especially crazy. Squee!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: I've seen the movie... and I will pass...Avatar ImageGraymayne says: I can't say that I was overwhelmed by the OotP IMAX experience, but the sound system was much better. I thought the modern building was really weird and it nearly killed me to climb the stairs to reach the seats.Avatar ImageFlonk says: Only the first 12 minutes? Is that really worth travelling 1 1/2 hours to the next IMAX theater? Hm... The end of OotP must have been more effective, but unfortunately I didn't make it to an IMAX theater back then. Avatar Imagesuzukithor says: I don't know what's going on in the rest of the world, but I just got back from seeing HP6 at my IMAX theater in Branson, MO. I was definately in an IMAX theater and definately saw HP6 in IMAX at the midnight showing. It was without a doubt the greatest piece of cinema ever put on film. If someone can explain how Branson, MO got an IMAX version, when the rest of the world is having issues, that would be great!Avatar Imagedior-able says: I've already seen the movie but I think I'll go see it again at IMAX!Avatar Imagehericus says: WOOO!! Im seeing HBP in an hour, not in imax but still cant wait! Avatar ImageMugglejeff says: HP6 was great, I wanted to get back in line and watch it again.Avatar Imagemonicahp2009 says: In conjunction with the Harry Potter exhibit the Museum of Science and Industry is showing HBP in the OmiMax Dome. I've seen a few movies in that format and you really feel you're part of the movie. Avatar ImageLulaL says: suzuki: I heard that they may be showing 35 mm prints, without the 3D, at some IMAX theaters before release of the 3Ds. Avatar ImageLulaL says: Where's the list of US IMAX's?Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: awesum :) !!!! cant WAIT 4 HBP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImagePhlegm De La Coeur says: what the heck where's Canada?? imax corp is canadian!!Avatar ImageWhisperwing says: There -is- an IMAX theater less than forty five minutes from me, but, they only ever show museum-oriented movies there.Avatar ImageJadeDanielle says: I've never seen a film at an IMAX at all, let alone IMAX 3D. Is it really worth it?Avatar Imagegot2lovme says: i'm so going to see it in IMAX. The first scenes in the movie were amazing.I could only imagine how good those scenes will look in 3d.Avatar ImageNiphai says: WOW, I just came home from the IMAX showing in Amsterdam. I really love the film, and the IMAX was absolutely brilliant!Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: That would be so cool to see! If only there was an IMAX around here...Avatar ImageTiannangel says: Sydney and it's biggest screen in the world!! WOOT! Can't wait. XDAvatar Imagecauldronjane says: IMAX is a tad expensive, but if friends are willing to come with, this is definitely an option to consider.Avatar ImageLos_Boy says: Most all of the IMAX theaters in the US were forced by Paramount and IMAX to sign a contract that Transformers Revenge of the Fallen would play in the IMAX theaters for TWO FULL MONTHS knowing full well that it would cut into the opening of Harry Potter 6. Most of the big real IMAX theaters, not the new smaller theaters that only have a slightly larger screen, will now have to wait until some time in August to show the HP movie in IMAX. I will wait. I saw the last HP movie in IMAX 3-D and loved it. There are two 20 minute segments in #6 that are in IMAX 3-D. The previous one had only the last 20 minutes in 3-D and it was awesome. The only way to really get sucked into the world of Harry Potter is in IMAX with 3-D added as icing on the cake.Avatar ImageThe Stew says: I need to see this in IMAX!
