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.

Thanks Donna!

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 :(

I’d love this. I saw OotP in Imax, and it was wonderful.

It’s a nice idea to attract more audience to the theatres. They should do it worldwide.

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!

I guess it’d be too much to hope that they’re also re-releasing the Imax version?

That would be SUPER awesome.
