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 have absolutely no ride to MN if I did go. No one other than me would be willing to go. (Except for my sister, but she’s leaving for the Army in a week.)

This really sucks. The closest is Mall of America and would I really feel like driving 6hrs for a movie? I found it crazy that they left out Chicago(my city) and NYC. Those two of the biggest cities in the US.

OMG!! Can anyone here say, “FEELIES”?!?! Fiction becomes reality once more. (For those who don’t recognize the reference - Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World…)
