The IMAX debut of Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince will be delayed two weeks due to Transformer’s four week IMAX contract (read full story). On July 15th, the day the movie is released to the public, the film will only be able to be seen in three IMAX theaters; AMC Century City 15 (in Los Angeles), Henry Crown OMNIMAX (in Chicago), and AMC Loews Lincoln Square (in New York), everyone else will have to wait and suffer or watch and wonder.
The opening 12 minutes of Potter were converted to IMAX 3D, just like the final battle in the last movie that was in 3D. The movie was MEANT to be seen in 3-D.
So, now it’s your turn to weigh in on the matter….
Since only 12 minutes of the movie will be in IMAX 3D, this shouldn’t be a big deal but then again why make it in 3D and make audience members wait an extra two weeks to go see it?
The movie will open in IMAX at all remaining theaters on July 29th.
