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 can barely remember the first two movies so I suppose it would be a good idea to refresh my memory before HBP is released! :D

That’s just beyond cool. Why don’t we get that in the US?

Oh, that’s so cool! It’s not quite the same, but the day before OOTP came out here in Missouri, they showed all of the films in a row. I thought that was quite fun, but having them rereleased over several weeks is even better!

Hoyts is the big movie theatre chain in Australia. I’m glad we’re doing something cool like that coz the UK and US get everything, like the conventions and exhibitions and fantastic movie premieres, but we get this which is good!
