Australian Fans to See Theatrical Re-Release of Harry Potter Films Before Half-Blood Prince
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.
yay i love it when they do this
That would be so cool. I would love some of the $2 theaters to have a pre HBP marathon.
this sucks….i don’t want this stupid marathon…i want the move on the same date as everyone else!!!
WHY DO THEY HATE AUSSIES! We’ve been later than everyone else for every realease date of hbp!!!
Yeah I wish they would do this here in Egypt it was very awesome when i saw GoF and OotP in theaters :D
Those lucky Australians!
I am sooooooo jeaulous. That´s awesome!! I would love to see the previous movies on the big screen again. That´s quite clever. They should do that here in Brazil.
that’s a really good idea. if that doesn’t happen here in the States, then i guess i will have to copy the idea and have a movie marathon of my own. Kudos to whoever thought of re-releasing them in theaters. :)
I was only 5 and 6 when the first two came out so i REEEEAAALLLYYY want to go see them again but i probably would be going if it was at greater union (another aussie theatre)
wow, what a great idea!
Hey cool! I’m in Australia, but havent heard that news before though. Gonna have to look up where the closest Hoyts theatre is now.
Wonderful!!!! I can’t wait to go and see them all. I only watched Goblet of Fire and Order of Phoenix at the movies, it would so much fun to bring my friends and show them how much Harry Potter is famous around Australia, and its not just me!! lol!!! I am so glad Australia is doing something, as the USA have the exhibition and London have the premiere and so do other countries. Hope to see everyone there!
Oh YAY australia gets something nice! About time!
I wish they do this in US
Those living in Australia really do get the crappy end of the stick when it comes to films. Originally we were having to wait a month for HBP after the US and UK releases, so this is fun news my kids are all looking forward to taking advantage of. Obviously I will have to be dragged kicking and screaming to every single showing :P!
Stock up on the Pods, Hoyts!
Why do the smart ppl have to live in Australia??
Do WB know how much money they could make if they did this all over the world?? I would go see each movei in theaters!
