Harry Potter fans in select movie theaters will have an opportunity to experience Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in a whole new way. Five theaters in the US will screen the sixth Harry Potter film, with the seats to offer a new D-Box Motion-enhanced system. According to the press release, this type of specially equipped theater seating "captivates moviegoers, creating a completely immersive, realistic experience where audience members feel as though they are actually in the movie," allowing Harry Potter fans to "experience the whimsy of flight and the intensity of battle" as they watch Half-Blood Prince. The five theaters in the US to feature this special seating for screenings of HBP include: Galaxy Cannery in Las Vegas, Nevada; Mann Chinese 6 Theatre in Hollywood; UltraStar Cinemas in Surprise, Arizona; Galaxy Highland Theatre in Austin, Texas; and Theatres at Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota. The Cineplex Odeon Queensway in Etobicoke, Canada will also provide this seating.

I think I remember something like this at Disneyworld several years ago, just not for this movie obviously.

I wish such a theater were closer to where I live; seeing the movie in this fashion would certainly enrich the experience altogether! I hope that for the people who are able to see the movie in these theaters, they have a marvelous time.

OMG!!! I live in MN, and we are always too far away from all the big-city stuff on the east and west coasts. I can’t wait to see it. Although, I haven’t been able to find any info on purchasing tickets in advance. Has anyone else found anything?
