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.

How does this work exactly? Is this like the Honey I shrunk the audience thing at Disney World where you feel air blowing at you and the seats move a bit and stuff? or what?

Man!! I wish they would bring one here, but that is a very small chance considering there’s only one movie theater in the city where I live. :(

Oh, and tickets for D-Box movies at Galaxy Highland are $15 for matinee and $16.75 for evening showings. Unfortunately, it’s a little out of my price range.

I think that this is a little bit obsessive. I have the opportunity to see it because I live near the chinese theatre if i want to spend a fortune. i’d rather, just, like, keep a safe distance from the movie, you know? it’s like 3D, I unfortunately see it as superfluous for me. But i really hope others enjoy it.
