April 26, 2009, 10:31 AM
Fans in Australia will be able to watch all the Harry Potter films on the big screen again as part of the build up to the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Longtime TLC reader Donna let us know that starting June 11, Hoyts movie theaters will be screening Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. This will be followed with re-releases of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on June 18, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban on June 25, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire starts July 2, with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix due to screen July 9th. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will then open in Australia on July 15.
That is so cool! I’ve always wanted movie theaters to do that with series movies!!! That would get a lot of people to go to the theaters and spend a lot of money, too! I doubt the US would pick that up, though… and even if they did at $7.50 a ticket, I couldn’t afford to go to all of them!!! That just makes me sad :(
I’m glad the Aussie’s are getting something though! They always seem to be left out :(
Sweet, I’m super excited! Finally us Aussies get something awesome no one else does! Yay! Though I do wish everyone else was doing this in other countries…
I’d love this. I saw OotP in Imax, and it was wonderful.
WOW so awesome! Would I ever start booking off work right now! Haha. I hope a Canadian/American chain picks up the idea!
all I got to say is LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY!
It’s a nice idea to attract more audience to the theatres. They should do it worldwide.
YES!!!!!! This is awesome! It’s about time something happened in Australia! I am definitely going!!!
OMG, that is so cool, I was just saying I wish our theaters would do this here! I wonder if any will take note? Pleasepleaseplease??? I would love to see them all on the big screen again!
The only Harry Potter I haven’t seen in theatres was the Philosopher’s Stone! I hope they re-release them here in Canada, too!
Such a good idea! Hope they do it here too!
This is SOO awesome!
The first movie I saw on the big screen was GOF – I can’t wait to see POA especially! :D
I guess it’d be too much to hope that they’re also re-releasing the Imax version?
That would be SUPER awesome.
Yay finally us in Aust has something cool to do thats potter related
that’s what im gonna do at home, watch all the hp movies then at midnight BAM go see HBP, muhaha, I cannot wait!!!!
