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.

Don’t travel out of your way just yet! Speaking as an Austinite who saw Terminator with D-box, the description is an overstatement: “captivates moviegoers, creating a completely immersive, realistic experience where audience members feel as though they are actually in the movie.” Not quite—-my seat moved around, my candy ended up on the floor, and at no time did I feel as though I was “in the movie.” Granted, I was disappointed by Terminator (and I’ve been a huge fan for years), so maybe it would be better if the movie were worth seeing and one wanted to be “immersed” in it. I’ll be sure to check it out for HP and post a review on leakylounge. Who knows? It may be worth traveling for (I imagine the flying scenes will be cool).

Guess That Book

The hooded figure raised its head and looked right at Harry -- unicorn blood was dribbling down its front. It got to its feet and came swiftly toward Harry -- he couldn't move for fear.
