POA IMAX NYC
And since there's a huge number of Harry Potter fans in and around the New York area, we thought, why not have a massive film-going event on the afternoon of June 5 (the day after the US release) at the LOEWS IMAX on the Upper West Side in Manhattan?
The theater's Group Sales Office has given us a chance to purchase discounted tickets as a block, so we can all sit together and watch the film on the larger-than-life IMAX screen, and then we can all adjourn together to for nibbles and post-film analysis somewhere in the neighborhood (location to be announced - we're talking with a Columbus Square bookstore right now).
At this point, we don't have an exact start-time for the film, but the theater tells us it'll start between three p.m. and four-thirty p.m., with the afterparty running from approximately seven-thirty until nine o'clock.
Everyone is welcome, but we ask that kids under fifteen attend with a parent or guardian.
Since we have to buy the tickets ahead of time to get the seats blocked, and to get the discount, ticket orders will be facilitated by FictionAlley.
You can pay with PayPal using the page here until May 31 (or until tickets sell out) or you can send a money order or a check (postmarked by May 15 or until we announce that tickets have sold out) to the address on that page.
If you have any questions, feel free to post here! And if you're sending a check or money order, we'd appreciate it if you'd post here telling us to look for it (but you're not required to do so).
