PoAIMAXNYC was nine years ago today.

And the final update we posted on Leaky is still live at the website.

Anyone who went still on lj?

Breaking the long silence... [May. 29th, 2005|07:01 pm]

[boggart |curiouscurious]

Alrighty, I know that the POA buzz is over. But it seems that we should be even more geared up for the release of HBP! It there a community set up for any line parties/get togethers in NYC? *Are* there any line parties/get togethers in NYC?

July 15th just happens to be the last day of a class that I am taking at NYU, and I'm ecstatic that I'll be in the city to get my copy. I was surrounded by local kids (ie - a few of my students) when I went for OotP. And my husband keeps asking me why I can't wait until I get home from NYC to get my copy... *sigh*.

So what will all you native New Yorkers be doing at 9:00 pm, July 15th?

Wow, I just noticed I'm still in the community. Yay for us sticking together!

By the way, I haven't kept up to date with JKR's website, is there any expected time for book 6 to come out?

Oh what an event, what a show! [Jun. 7th, 2004|07:43 am]

I'm on a plane now, about halfway between New York City and Miami, a few thousand feet in the air, glancing out the window in hopes of seeing a man on a flying motorcycle...

And it's June 6, and in book-chronology, today is ten years to the day from the moment Harry learned that, to paraphrase Into The Woods, rodents can be vile and 'madmen' can be good - and so can the werewolves who care so fiercely about them. And I *just* realised that the whole scene happened on the 50th anniversary of D-Day. I wonder if that means anything...

It's coming on midnight UK time now, as I write this, but I won't be able to post for another hour, once we've landed (ETA: and because of connection issues, I didn't manage to post this until Monday morning - but the sentiments are the same).

So I wanted to take this moment to thank everyone who made yesterday's POA IMAX NYC overwhelming and spectacular! Of course, Melissa, my TLC cohort who helped coordinate and co-organize, Megan and Kristin and BK who kept the inspiration going, and everyone who helped us at the theater: Aimee and Amy, who flanked me at the table, Gwen and Carrie and Anna and Victoria and Katie who handled directional and distributional activities, Ali and Scott who rescued me, Liss and Lisa and Jori who helped with crowd's movement, and, Cheryl, without whom none of us would've been there, in a sort of roundabout way. And I know I'm forgetting people, as I don't have any photos to remind me right now.

Kudos to the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression who sold tonnes of shirts and buttons to support free speech and the right of everyone to write what they dream about and read what they choose, including and especially Harry Potter books!

And of course, thanks to all of you who came to the show - who were so patient in line, and who cheered and shrieked and laughed and swooned through the film. What a wonder to see this show with all of you!

A few of you asked if we'd do it again for Goblet of Fire - when we have a release date, we'll talk.

We'd love to collect the pictures everyone took - if you could send them to poaimax@the-leaky-cauldron.org we'd really appreciate it (and under 100kb per photo is most appreciated). Thanks again for coming - and we hope to see all of you again!

Thank you! [Jun. 6th, 2004|11:56 pm]

[boggart |thankfulthankful]

I just wanted to say thank you to everybody involved in planning, organizing, and attending the event this Saturday. Everything seemed to go incredibly smoothly and you all did a terrific job!

While my friends and I have gone to several different events and conventions together, this was our first time seeing a movie in a theater with 600 other rabid fans... we all agreed that it was definitely a different experience, and one we're glad we got to be a part of. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity.
