Fans are also invited to dress up in wizarding costumes for the occasion.
"We can't wait to welcome the biggest and bravest Harry Potter fans in the country," said Justin Johnson, head of operations at BFI Imax. "If they see every film they'll spend almost 20 hours in the company of all their favourite characters!

I so hope they do this in Ireland too, tempted to get a plane over to UK just for a weekend :)
I wish I lived in the UK no way I’d miss that. The IMAX over here should do that! Then I could go…
What a treat !
Hay anyone knows such competition in INDIA……or amother same……plz tell me…….
If i were in uk then i will accept these chalenge…..
I would love to do this but I can’t. It would be amazing if there was a huge IMAX near me that could do this…
Might not be able to go:(
Is it just in London or all IMAX cinemas??
If anyone knows could you owl me please?? Thank you! <3
Why isnt any U.S. theaters doing this!?!? At least with part 1 they should be showing both DH movies back to back. I need to start looking into tickets, see what I can find out.
In Finland, Finnkino is doing in select cities what they call “Tylypahkan laaja oppimäärä”, or “Extensive Syllabus of Hogwarts” (probably a crappy translation, I don’t know the correct terms in English), a week of HP movies leading up to Deathly Hallows II. They’re showing one movie every night, from the 4th July until 10th July, then have a break for a couple of days and then the premiere of DH II on the 13th, at 0:07 o’clock.
Sounds like a good time will be had…
I don’t live in UK either. :(
I wish I could go go!!!!!!!! i don’t live in UK. :(
That is so cool! But, I’m blessed to have all the films and I could watch it anytime! =]
Why does all the good stuff happen in the US and UK?! soooooo jealous. please go, enjoy, and tell me all about it!
