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."

Awesome! I never got to see OotP in IMAX 3D so this should be especially crazy. Squee!

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.

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.

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!

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.

suzuki: I heard that they may be showing 35 mm prints, without the 3D, at some IMAX theaters before release of the 3Ds.

There is an IMAX theater less than forty five minutes from me, but, they only ever show museum-oriented movies there.
