POA IMAX NYC [Apr. 26th, 2004|01:47 pm]

As the release date for Prisoner of Azkaban approaches, Harry Potter fans all over the world are making plans to get together to see the film.

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).

Manhattan... *shiver* I'd think about going, if I didn't loathe NYC so much, it sounds really neat.

IMAX in Georgia

The IMAX at Mall of Georgia will be showing POA. It probably has party rooms. If you are interested in discussing, please visit my live journal. I think everyone can comment there. If not, send me an email, siriuskase@earthlink.net.

Oh, I'd so love to come (live on E. side), though I'm a little hesitant as I'm not really involved so much with fandom. Does everyone else planning to go already know each other? Will it be totally weird if a random teenager shows up?

Some people know some other people but there's already at least 20 people who've rsvp-ed that I don't know at all. And what better way to link up with fandom?

Yes, btw, I know that other teens will be there.

Oooh, New Yorker and fandom lurker... I've never met anyone in person before, but I'd love to see the movie on IMAX. It wouldn't be weird to show up randomly with a boyfriend in tow, would it? *suddenly shy*

No, not a bit weird! But if you want to "delurk" before then, this is as good a place as any to start. Can I friend you?

Don't worry about not knowing anyone. I don't know anyone and I am coming with my girlfriend, so I am sure there are going to be a lot of fans there that are new to each other. We are getting together to see what is going to be a great movie. I am sure there are going to be all ages as well, I'm 26...and it was already mentioned that there are some teens going... So come on down! I will see everyone there!

We're going to be handing out the tickets there about 90 minutes beforehand, until showtime.

I'm so jealous! Of course this happens right after they close down the Miami IMAX.

You're in Miami? Wheee, so am I! And yes, it's terrible about closing the Sunset! What on earth are they going to put in there? I loved that theater, but the projecter was *always* breaking and shows were always delayed, which was a bit annoying.

Tickets For PoA Movie

I was just wondering how the tickets will be distributed. Are they going to be mailed or Do we pick them up?

Re: Tickets For PoA Movie

Heidi is reporting over on TLC that the tickets will be distributed in the 90 minutes or so prior to the movie. There will be more announcements about what the distributers will be wearing, exact time, etc. This is per Heidi. Link here: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/MTarchives/week_2004_04_25.html#004417
