If you’re a diehard Harry Potter fan, then you’ll want to set aside some time the week of October 13th. Starting then, IMAX will release all eight Harry Potter films on the super-large format for the first time. It’s a limited engagement, however, so you’ll want to grab your tickets quickly:
In anticipation of the global IMAX release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them beginning the weekend of November 18, IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX) and Warner Bros. Pictures today announced that all eight Harry Potter films will screen for the first time in domestic IMAX locations for an exclusive one-week engagement beginning October 13. The event, which will build on the growing excitement surrounding J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World franchise, marks the first time both Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX® format and released in IMAX® theatres.
Kicking off the weeklong Harry Potter engagement will be a global fan event on Oct. 13 celebrating the upcoming release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Fans attending the event at select IMAX theatres in the U.S. and internationally will be treated to a never-before-seen reel from the much-anticipated new film, as well as in-person appearances by talent from the film at two IMAX locations in London and Los Angeles, a live Q&A and more.
The Harry Potter engagement will screen in IMAX® 2D and also feature additional content from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, including the exclusive reel from the fan event and specially recorded greetings from star Eddie Redmayne and other talent.
Tickets will be available by means of four separate admission packages: Single Ticket; Day Access (admittance to three or more shows in a single day); Four-Show Access (admittance to four shows any time, any day); and Festival Access (unlimited admittance throughout the event). Packages offered and pricing may vary by theatre.
The IMAX release of each film will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
