Hello darlings,

I just looked at my little calendar and... OMG! HBP is finally getting closer! Just about a month away! YAYS!

The lovely Jeny (whose lj name I've forgotten as I'm typing this away from my computer) has already tried to find out when tickets might be going on sale, the smug ticket boy(tm) was apparently surprised that someone would want tickets this far in advance. Muggles, can't live with them - can't turn them into ferrets. Le sigh.

So...We have two independent plans.

Plan #1

Midnight release party at AMC Elmwood 20
I'm presuming they will be having the IMAX 3D version at midnight; but right now - who knows. Muggles and logic, oy.
Of course, we will always have the regular version - but we can jump off that cliff when we get there? Right? Of course, right.

Plan #2

Saturday SqueeFest Part Deux
Again - depending on the IMAX schedules. Since this is on a Saturday, please lets not go at the buttcrack o' dawn - sleep is our friend? Yes? For OofP, we did nosh beforehand and a 7pm show. Does that still sound like a good idea? Any other suggestions?

Meet-up Locations

I have a very very small list of the places in the immediate vicinity of the theatre. There are also a metric ton of fast food joints and several other places I'd just flat not remembered; so if any other ideas come up - let me know and I can edit the list. :D

Money Legend Breakdown:

(Note: does not include adult beverages or taxes)

$ 10 bucks should cover you
$$ 10-15 range depending on how you order
$$$ 20 should do it (more or less)

(Louisiana) Copeland's of New Orleans 1001 S Clearview Pkwy Harahan $$$
  New Orleans Hamburger-Seafood 1005 S Clearview Pkwy Harahan $$
(Sushi) Sake Cafe of Elmwood 1130 S Clearview Pkwy Harahan $$$
(Generic) Applebee's 1220 S Clearview Pkwy Harahan $
(Louisiana/US) Zea Cafe 1655 Hickory Ave Harahan $$$
(D'uh) Wow Wingery 5359 Mounes St # H Harahan $
(Sushi/Japan) Kyoto Two 5608 Citrus Blvd # A-B Harahan $$$
(D'uh) Reginelli's Pizzeria 5608 Citrus Blvd # C Harahan $$
(Greasy Spoon) Fat Hen Grill 5708 Citrus Blvd Harahan $

This is the part where I say "speak now or forever hold your peace".

Has anyone else heard that the IMAX Harry Potter won't be out until two weeks after the release date? I read it on IMDB. Something about Transformers requiring a full month of IMAX screens before they switch over to HP.

It is still "unofficial", probable - but still unofficial.

I'm game for both! And I'll nosh anywhere.

Due to the uncertainty of the IMAX release on the 14th (likely pushed to the 29th), should we purchase regular-viewing tickets for the midnight release? Will the showing sell out? I've heard of sell-outs in other cities, but I don't recall even remotely having a problem for OotP.

MR blood

errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr that will be SOOSOSO crappy !!

when we tried to see UP the other day, it was NOT in the IMAX because of NIght at the Museum. I really did NOT think about that for Harry Potter .. That will be BOOOOOOOOOOO if so..

Anyway I will call on Monday morning and see what I can get out of the movie minions !!

We were sort of thinking the fox and the hound but no set plans, we could always eat and them meet for drinks ? what time do you normally get in line ??

I am hoping that the midnight showing will be in IMAX. Regardless I am going to see the movie. Dressed in my Hogwarts gear of course!
