Ok muggles and wizards, here's the deal. As you may have heard, the sixth installment in your favorite movie series arrives in theaters this week. If you haven't already, be sure to get your tix for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince before they're snatched up faster than a Golden Snitch in a Quidditch match. Also, while theaters everywhere are opening HP 6 in 35 MM on July 15th (including early midnight shows), a few select theaters in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York will also be opening the movie on that date, too, in IMAX and IMAX 3D. While you'll have to wait for the majority of IMAX theaters to release the film in that format on July 29th (don't fret, reviews at Rotten Tomatoes are over 95% fresh currently, and HP deserves at least a couple of viewings on the big screen and biggest screen, right?), the full slate of showtimes is already available now here: tix for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: The IMAX Experience and tix for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: An IMAX 3D Experience.
In addition, we have an easy blog contest for you to sign up for here for a couple more free IMAX tix and some more cool Harry Potter paraphenelia. To enter, simply enter one (just one, please) blog comment to this post only with your answer to the following - who is your favorite Harry Potter character, and why?
Here's what you'll have a chance to win...two free IMAX tix, a Harry Potter t-shirt and Harry Potter temp tattoos (see the images below). We'll randomly select (10) winners from those who enter between now and the end of the day on July 22nd, and then let the winners know right away. Got it? Sweet, now get to it all of you Houses of Gryffindor, Slytherin and the rest!
